Thanks for the extra stuff. I was particularly interested to watch a full version of one of the Disney WWII pieces

I want to thank Ben Judy for doing a great job on his presentation
called Axis & Allies: Design Thinking in World War II.  If you missed
his presentation (or you want to watch it again), you can find it

Some additional links that I shared at the end of his presentation included:

Walt Disney and His World War II Films:
Before opening up Walt Disney Theme Parks, Disney produced a series of
animated shorts to help educate the American public and US troops.  In
some cases, the films are filled with stereotype characters and stark
visuals.  Watch a short You Tube video here:

Dr. Seuss and His World War II Political Cartoons:
Before the Grinch and Horton, Dr. Seuss drew a series of political
cartoons to support American involvement in World War II.  Dr. Seuss
opposed American isolationism.  Browse through some of his early
political cartoons.  Be prepared.  He was trying to evoke a response,
but you can see an image of the Grinch in several of his cartoons.
Notice how he signs them as TED, not Dr. Seuss.  Find them here:

John Steinbeck and The Moon is Down:
John Steinbeck felt that the biggest issue with the occupied countries
was the people who collaborated with the Axis forces.  The Moon is
Down is Steinbeck's opus to the dangers of collaborating with the
enemy.  He universalizes the concept by not identifying the occupying
force. The reader is just told about The Leader, which is a reference
to Adolf Hitler.  Read about it here:

Bill Mauldin's Willie and Joe Cartoons:
Bill Mauldin won the Pulitzer Prize before he was 25 years old for his
cartoon known as Willie & Joe, which was shown in Stars and Stripes
(the World War II newspaper).  General George Patton wanted to throw
Mauldin in jail for his portrayal of a typical GI soldier in Wille and
Joe.  Patton wanted the characters to be drawn a noble men fighting a
herioc battle.  Check out some of Bill Mauldin's work here:,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.&biw=1280&bih=832&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi&ei=CfNlUL3OGIiE2QXSmYDACw#um=1&hl=en&tbm=isch&sa=1&q=Wille+and+Joe&oq=Wille+and+Joe&gs_l=img.3...6496.9791.0.10092.,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.&fp=132969eac2d8f434&biw=1280&bih=832
