One can see how this short would have cut into Disney short bookings. It really is humorous and over 70 years later Donald is still a star.
Man I wish my taxes were that easy. Did you notice that along with living in Hollywood as an actor that Donald Duck has adopted his nephews?
It is a little unsettling to me to see Disney animation being used to depict guns, battleships and bombers. But it does make a point, your taxes pay for the war effort. And I cannot get "Taxes to Sink the Axis" out of my mind.
Honestly, I do feel like this short was a success, despite the fact that it resulted in little profit for the Walt Disney Studios. It is funny, well animated, has star power and shows how Disney supported the war effort during World War II.
