Meet John Doughboy is a 1941 Looney Tunes cartoon directed by Bob Clampett.


Draftee Porky shows "America's Defense Effort," a war newsreel full of military secrets. This cartoon rallies American public support for the war production of tanks, planes and big guns. It promotes the draft while slamming anti-draft politics. It mentions British Spitfire aircraft, but also the importance of American design improvements to it. A politically incorrect scene shows a driver in blackface who speaks in a stereotyped manner. The cartoon strongly suggests that the United States mainland is threatened with direct attack. Several scenes show 1941 newspaper headlines, including one about a strike at the Ford Motor Company's plant in Dearborn, Michigan.
