In this dated but amusing pre-WW2 cartoon, newly drafted Porky Pig narrates a newsreel (replete with an RKO-Radio about America's defense efforts. In preparation against enemy attacks, Uncle Sam has sanctioned the building of tanks and planes, while the Army has stepped up its war games and training maneuvers. Some surprisingly potent political propaganda (from both the Left and the Right) is interwoven with typically hilarious Warner Bros. cartoon sight gags and verbal humor. Jack Benny, Eddie "Rochester" Anderson, the emperor Napoleon and even Citizen Kane ("Sugar" Kane, that is) make cameo appearances.
