G.I. Loans

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 22, 2004

    Veterans in the post-World War II era were often convinced to buy homes with the promise of advantageous mortgage loans -- though probably with somewhat less pressure than Bugs uses to bamboozle the Sheriff of Nottingham in Rabbit Hood (Jones, 1949). It is also rather unlikely that such loans were used to finance palaces like the one built by the Caliph Hassan Pheffer (get it?) in A Lad in His Lamp (McKimson, 1948).
