In his role as Prime Minister of England, one of the “Big Three” allied leaders during World War II. His unique diction is imitated by the rotten baby Percy/Butch in Brother Brat (Tashlin, 1944), after the baby ends up with a pot on his head which happens to look like one of Churchill’s hats. One of the baby ducks in Booby Hatched (also Tashlin, 1944) is named Winston, along with an Eleanor and a Franklin, referring to the Roosevelts.
