Uncle SamIam.

The dark side of...Theodor Seuss Geisel, a.k.a. Dr. Seuss, began his career as a little known editorial cartoonist in the 1920s. Here are some of the political cartoons he wrote between 1941 and 1943. They are EXTREMELY racist but were merely the propagandized voice of the times.































To find more of these political cartoons, you can always click over to Seuss.

Our Job in Japan (1945) was written and directed by Dr. Seuss. It was a training film for soldiers who would occupy Japan after the war. Our Job In Japan was shown to the troops sent to occupy post-war Japan. It explained that Japanese people are not inherently evil, just brain washed by religion and cultural into becoming killers. There was still hope for them.

He also wrote, along with Warner Brothers' animation department, a character named Private SNAFU. Snafu (Situation Normal, All Fucked Up) was created by Frank Capra, and voices were done by Mel Blanc (Bugs Bunny). He always got into trouble and created more harm than good. Through his irresponsible behavior, Snafu demonstrates to soldiers what not to do while at war.
