Do you like cute animals? What about scenes of devastation, apocalypse and existential allegory? This cartoon has them all!

"Peace On Earth"

The only cartoon ever nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, this 1939 Hugh Harman cartoon shows a post-apocalyptic world populated by animals picking up the pieces after a war kills every human on earth.

When I get to be the Decider, I'll make sure this is shown on network TV every December. Even if I have to preempt "The Grinch."

(Thanks, Peter!)

Bambi meets the Apocalypse. But didn't you notice a certain irony in the fact that the squirrels were singing, "Peace on Earth, good will to MEN" when there weren't any men left around?

That's all terrible the thing you are telling.
