Private Snafu vs. Malaria Mike
A US-army sponsored instructional film aimed at military personnel.Produced by the US Army Signal Corps and distributed by Warner Bros Pictures. Although none of the key production personnel are credited onscreen there are some famous characters associated with this short film. If Snafu sounds like Bugs Bunny that's because he IS Bugs Bunny, well, Bug Bunny's voice - Mel Blanc (check out the sound he makes when he tosses the repellent away). Also, the supervising producer was Theodore Geisel - better known as Dr Seuss.
I'm not going to mention the frequent depiction of naked buttocks in this army sponsored film....
