He was a nazi lover, no?
Urban legend I believe.
Ahhhh.... Like Walt freezing his body...
You know that Nazi thing might be true... Ever seen Donald Duck's banned cartoon on Youtube?
...what, you mean the one where he has a nightmare that he's living in a dystopian Nazi Germany, and upon waking up leaps out of bed and hugs a miniature statue of liberty?
Yeah, I think...
But what does that prove. That cartoon's goal was to show how horrible Hilter was and how bad life as a Nazi would be. It was completely pro-American. I've never believed this Disney/Nazi stuff for a second.
I didn't see the full episode...
All I can say is, if you go to the spy museum in DC (among others, I think), you can find WWII propaganda movies starring Donald Duck encouraging citizens to do their part to "fight the axis."
I'd encourage Nazi theorists to produce documentation or some form of solid evidence about Disney's political leanings. Mere theory has no place on the Wiki.
Then your really in no position to say anything about it, are you?
I've seen the short in History class, and if memory serves, Donald woke up in a nightmareish world where he was worked to exhaustion and he was very thankful to find it was just a nightmare.
Numerous studios produced such shorts to bolster support for Savings Bonds and such.
I'm pretty sure Disney was NOT pro-Nazi.
