Political campaign cartoon for Franklin Roosevelt sponsored by the United Auto Workers and directed by Chuck Jones.
A really cool pop culture document from the last FDR campaign.
I have always enjoyed animation from Chuck Jones and this was fun.
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.
PASS THE PHILLIE BUSTER
Chuck Jones, dig it.
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.
Interesting election cartoon. A nice piece of history.
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.
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'...
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!
great nostalgic fun and refreshing break from our present campaigns
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.
