Peace on Earth (1939) is an MGM classic from the eve of World War II. The juxtaposition of the too-cute-for-words animals (a trademark of director Hugh Harmon) and the dark, apocalyptic theme is pretty striking, and probably goes a long way toward explaining why it's almost never seen anymore. Nevertheless, it's earned its spot at number 40 on the list of 50 Greatest Cartoons.

p3 Bonus Toon: Jesse Springer ponders the up side--and the down side--of dropping gas prices. (Click to enlarge.)
