    It is hardly surprising that Warner Brothers cartoonists did not pass up a chance to have Daffy say the name of this German aircraft manufacturing firm in Daffy - The Commando (Freleng, 1944). Messerschmits made the feared Me-109 (also known as the Bf-109) fighter, the mainstay of the Luftwaffe. Messerschmidts are also mentioned by the Gremlins in their song in Russian Rhapsody (Clampett, 1944). Private Snafu in Snafuperman also makes reference to these planes.
