I used to love watching Disney's Donald Duck cartoons (my favorite is still the one where they explain how to shoot pool using math), but this takes it to a whole new level. Combine everyone's favorite raucous duck with America's cacophonous talking head and you've got polititoonical goodness.

I've seen all of the toons they used to make this video and they go really well with Beck's ominous radio propaganda. Kudos to the filmmakers; I loved it.

What cartoons did you watch as a kid? Any ideas on how to use them for political purposes now that you're an adult?

just last night i was watching the two chipmunks (the looney tunes ones, not chip 'n' dale), and it occurred to me that if you wanted to make a fake documentary video of "don't ask, don't tell" cartoon characters and their struggles, these two would be the first ones i'd interview...but i'd toss in the scene with bugs ("...if an interesting monster can't have an interesting hairdo...") and a few others to make the case that virtually all the looney tunes/merrie melodies cast (especially yosemite sam and foghorn leghorn, who would be a couple in my imaginary documentary) was unable to serve openly.
