Donald Duck's Fascist Nightmare

I've long heard legends of this Disney short "In Der Fuhrer's Face" an Oscar-winning short built around the song of the same name by Spike Jones and the City Slickers. I sorta wish they'd built a dark ride at Disneyland around this cartoon. The over-the-top fascist imagery (dig the Hitler moustache on Donald's house) and the anthropomorphized bullets would be super trippy in real life.

This is one Disney did to help train the troops, which I find quite interesting. As for the one you have posted, any idea if he actually made it at the government's request to use as propaganda, or was it just one of the many shorts Disney Studios cranked out for the general masses?
