In this classic WW2 cartoon, a German foxhole commandeered by Nazi officer Von Vulture and his gormless aide Schultz is "invaded" by American commando Daffy Duck. Daffy and Von Vulture spend the rest of the cartoon trying to outsmart each other, with the Nazi getting the worst of it. After Daffy neutralizes a "mess of Messerschmidts", he has a climactic confrontation with none other than Adolf Hitler (courtesy of some rotoscoped newsreel footage). With all this going on, there's still time left over for "inside" references to the Ernst Lubitsch film To Be or Not to Be and the radio series Fibber McGee and Molly.
