Nimbus Libere

Offered purely for historical value and certainly with no malice toward Jews (as tomorrow is my son's bar mitzvah!), here is a 1944 propaganda cartoon from Vichy France that comes complete with Jewish stereotypes, disinformation and negativitybut is distinguished by the bizarre and surprisingly well-animated once in a lifetime teamup of Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Felix the Cat, Goofy and Popeye...and NOT in a good way! The credits give the direction to "Cal" but IMDB says the equally unknown Raymond Jeannin.
