Political campaign cartoon for Franklin Roosevelt sponsored by the United Auto Workers and directed by Chuck Jones.
Chuck Jones took a break from directing Looney Tunes cartoons to make this labor-sponsored film for Franklin D. Roosevelt's 1944 Presidential campaign. It was produced by Industrial Film and Poster Service which, later rechristened United Productions of America (UPA), earned animation immortality with Gerald McBoing Boing and the nearsighted Mr. Magoo.

I have always enjoyed animation from Chuck Jones and this was fun.
So sad. All that we were fighting for.. all we were supposed to have won. Look at us now. No jobs. No security. Only business won.
Fascinating look into the politics of the era.
Incredible! What a weird little window into another world. It's extraordinary to be able to sit back with some context and see an impassioned worldview expressed with such acuity.
WOW on so many levels. Propaganda from the good guys. This is a time machine. Use it to go back to an era that we think differently about now than people thought then: vote for Roosevelt to WIN THE WAR. Artistically top notch. So worth your time.
Wow, a Jim Crow car on the Defeatist Limited, along with some old favorites like Hot Air...
Amazing how the more things change, the more they stay the same. Hmm, Obama is the 44th president...just sayin'...
PASS THE PHILLIE BUSTER
Interesting...a bit heavy on the propaganda...the Republicans loved Hitler?
Classic Chuck Jones! Simple, straightforward ideas and concepts but extraordinary illustration...If only the KIDS today really knew what they're missing in "today's" , so called, animation...I only guess that they will never miss what they don't know about...
You've got to view this!
Chuck Jones, dig it.
great nostalgic fun and refreshing break from our present campaigns
Like a series of single-panel political cartoons brought to life. Unabashed propaganda, complete with a cheery jingle. Good thing for us it was on the right side.
It's like watching the political cartoon in your newspaper come to life. Political cartoons are always a fascinating look at how we have/haven't changed.
