Private Snafu was a character that was created from Warner Brothers for the troops in World War 2. The film has since
fallen into the public domain. They are quite hilarious. I have remastered this video for your viewing pleasure. Some of
the enhancements I have performed include:

-Video Stabilization

-Gamma and contrast correction

-Denoising

-Increased sharpness

-Cleaned up the footage through various video filters

'Rumors' was released in 1943.

Directed by Friz Freleng

In this episode Snafu and the troops are making small talk over a recent bombing.

This starts to play of Snafu's mind: Snafu: "Bombing weather, bombing weather, bombing weather, bombing weather, bombing weather."

This quickly becomes more and more exaggerated by each person as the story is passed on of an imminent sign that the base will be bombed.

Snafu: "Just between you and me pal, I think we're in for a bombing."

This leads to an uproar as the entire army base explodes in panic as the talk of the bombing continues.

The moral of the story is that rumors can quickly get out of hand, especially in the military. The episode concludes with
Snafu getting institutionalized in a psychiatric ward and the base getting closed down due to quarantine.

Some of my favourite quotes from the narator

"The hot air is blowing, a rumor is growing."

"Balloon juice, it's phony but uh... it makes nice baloney. That's right, exaggerate it, stretch it, multiply it."

"Now shoot off your face and baloney is flying all over the place."
