WWII Disney Inspired Nose Art

WWII – I posted recently about posters supporting the war effort in Disney Went to War. I saw this video in a Twitter post from War History Online (@WarHistoryOL). It was posted to YouTube in November of 2018. As they say in their YouTube post:

From the quick-tempered Donald Duck to the loveable Dumbo, Walt Disney Productions created some 1,200 designs during World War II. Such recognizable characters were used for aircraft nose art, flight jacket patches, pins and other memorabilia for American and allied military units.

I thought that this was an interesting story. I wish they had shown more of the artwork though. I did find these Pinterest sites (site 1 & site 2) that do have more Disney WWII art.


If you are a student of the World War II era in history, you may find my pages “World War II Sources” (a collection of museums, websites, Facebook pages, and Twitter feeds with information on the World War II era in history) and “World War II Timeline” of interest.
