Cartoon Summary:

Snafu brags that he knows a military secret. After giving assurance that the secret is safe (he thinks that his lips are zipped up tight), Snafu goes to a bar and consumes alcohol. But Snafu learns that a "slip of the lip" can indeed sink a ship. The alcohol fills his body, breaking the chain and lock around his brain, and his secret. He drunkenly sits at a table and spills the story to a beautiful girl.

Next, we see Snafu on his boat in the Caribbean. Eight or so submarines attack his ship and sink it. After the sinking, the subs appropriately form a swastika in the water.

Snafu is dead and boiling in a pot in hell. The devil is portrayed as Hitler, and his helpers as Nazi soldiers. Snafu somewhat rhetorically asks who let his secret out. Hitler/devil holds a mirror to his face in which, instead of Snafu's sweating face, reflects the ass of an... ass. Then something is said about keeping secrets and the happy music ends the show.

I still can't get the brilliant rhymes out of my head, and the historicalk value is immessurable.
