Göebbels, Joseph

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 22, 2004

(d. 1945)

    The brilliant and twisted propaganda chief for Adolf Hitler, and essentially the boss of German cinema between 1933 and his suicide in the last days of World War II.

    Göebbles can be seen in the last scene of Plane Daffy (Tashlin, 1944), along with Hermann Göering, both of whom declare that Hitler being a stinker is no military secret, and, realizing their mistake, kill themselves in a scene which is usually cut when shown today.
