Tin Pan Alley Cats (1943)

A "Fats Waller" cat visits the Kit Kat Club to be tempted by wine, women and song, rather than listen to the pious sermons and hymns of the Uncle Tomcat Mission. A jazz version of "Nagasaki" gets so hot and makes him sing so high that it sends him "out of this world," straight to a Technicolor Wackyland, complete with Hitler, Stalin and Japanese enemies. Scared back to earth, he runs from the club to join the Uncle Tomcat Mission band for a rendition of "Dat Ol' Time Religion."

Tokyo Woes (1945)

"Tokyo Rose" broadcasts a message encouraging servicemen not to bother with war bonds. The Sad Sack, a fake U.S. POW with a Porky Pig voice, explains that life is so wonderful in Japan that he intends to move there permanently with his family. To the proposition "What good will bonds do?" Mr. Hook responds with a missile shell containing a reply from a "talking bond," along with a number of explosive devices. Post-war, another shell lands on Hook, this time containing the "talking bond" delivering all the benefits from his investment.

Wabbit Twouble (1941)

The sign greeting campers says, "Welcome to Jellostone National Park: A Restful Retreat." Elmer Fudd finds this to be a dirty lie when Bugs Bunny torments him for the fun of it.

What Price Porky (1938)

Porky tries to feed his chickens, but some ducks steal the corn he puts out, then declare war. The battle rages, with the ducks against the chickens, sometimes in wing-to-wing combat, but also aerial attacks, and Porky finally turning the tide with his machine gun improvised from a wringer washer and a bag of corn. But the ducks still get the last laugh.

What's Cookin' Doc? (1944)

As we see Mrs. Duck trying everything she can to get her eggs to hatch, Daffy gets into the "corn juice" to calm his frazzled nerves, and is roaring drunk when his children are born. When a dastardly vulture kidnaps Daffy's littlest duckling, the besotted duck must try to save the little duckling, and he enlists the aid of Porky Pig to do so.
