Top 10 Pro-Nazi Propaganda Cartoons From World War II
3. Der Storenfried (The Troublemaker) 1940
Der Storenfried is a German-made short (13 minutes) starring a troublesome fox that threatens the children of a rabbit. However, the rabbit is helped by a coalition of wasps and dogs (representing the German Air Force and Army) which engage the fox and chase it away from the village. The wasps and dogs attack in military formation, with the wasps diving and firing their stingers like the airplanes of the day.
The cartoon was intended to show how multitudes of weaker animals could work together to defeat a stronger adversary. The film was later adapted into a book, Reintje verwekt onrust, where the fox is depicted as the Soviet Union and the wasps are depicted as German airplanes.
