“Japanese Mandate Island”

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 22, 2004

    After the First World War, the former German colonies in the Western Pacific were awarded to the Japanese empire, which had long coveted them, under a mandate from the League of Nations. Japan was not supposed to fortify the islands, but did so. The Ducktators (McCabe, 1942) carries a reference to these islands, in which the Japanese duck plants a sign with this slogan on a turtle, who gets quite annoyed.
