ANIMATION HIGHLIGHT: Peace on Earth (1939)

Here's a piece of animation history, a Christmas tale from pre-WWII era MGM with a rather surreal short that juxtaposes happy animal cartoon characters with rotoscoped, wonderfully FX-driven images of war and destruction. An instructional tale for sure, well done from an animation-era gone by! Check out Cartoon Brew for more info on the history behind this almost-forgotten animated short.
