Watch Walt Disney On The Front Lines online: Episode 12 The Thrifty Pig

This short is one of four that the Disney studio created for Canada. It reuses the animation from "The Three Little Pigs", one of the earliest and most famous of Disney's cartoon shorts, which was a huge success in 1933. Here, the sturdiest of houses is built not with regular old brick, but with war savings certificates. The Big Bad Wolf becomes a Nazi officer, complete with Swastika armband. It was very neat to see this twist on the original short, which is slightly windowboxed and ends with straightforward animated messages encouraging Canadians to buy war savings certificates to support the war efforts.
