Tokio Jokio 2 out of 5 stars

Reviewed by: dingdog,

It is the apparent aspiration of this cartoon to be the most venomous example of anti-Axis humor; but it falls well, well below that goal mainly because it can't support its case with anything except the weakest & lamest of gags.
All in all, a prime reason why war is hell.

Tokio Jokio 2 out of 5 stars

Reviewed by: dingdog,

It is apparently the aspiration of this cartoon to be the most venomous example of American wartime humor. It just might have achieved that goal, if not for the fact it is supported by very, very weak gags. Several gags have to be viewed several times to be believed--including the opening "Japanese Air-Raid Siren" gag (two gentlemen taking turns jabbing each others' posterior with a pin), and the "Japanese Club Sandwich" (this one's even worse than you'd think).
This film may have added, in some (very) small way, to our ultimate wartime victory. Today, its existence is surely proof that war IS hell.
