Mickey Mouse In Vietnam




Rediscovered short film of the day: “Mickey Mouse Goes to Vietnam” by Lee Savage and Milton Glaser
Created in 1968, this is not an official Disney short, but it was created by Savage and Glaser as an underground anti-war film. They creators were never sued by Disney, though there was talk of legal action. Instead, the film just kind of disappeared until it recently showed back up on YouTube.

1. Poignant...

One could change "Vietnam" to "Iraq" or "Afghanistan" (or "Syria?" and it would just as effective today.

Or course there was a draft in 1968, so Mickey was there on his own volition, but still, there was a lot of the commies are comin' to getcha! then. And today, Mickey could be out of work and looking for "a job."

2. Some things never change.

But, unlike Toons, people don't spring back up.

4. They forgot Agent Orange.

And PTST.

Now we have Gulf War Syndrome from the first invasion of Iraq and severe PTSD. Neurological problems from the use of depleted uranium in the first and second invasion of Iraq.

Who knows what else?

The government denied that these conditions existed.
