Sunday Cartoon: WW2 RP Area

1 comment:

  1. For those who don't know, "Operation Petticoat" is a 1950's comedy around the misadventures of a US submarine in WW2. At one point, the ship needs to be painted, but there's no grey paint immediately available, only ammounts of red and white that are too small to use by themselves. So they have to mix them, resulting in a pink submarine. The plan is to repaint it when a shipment of gray comes in, but a Japanese attack forces them to take to sea.

    Made in the days before "don't ask don't tell," pink didn't bring out all the jokes it does today.
