Funded and approved by the US Department of Treasury in 1943, this Disney featurette was to encourage every good American to do his "duty" and pay his taxes, which, at this time, were at an all time high. Those who do not wish to pay or don't pay it gladly are depicted as friends of Hitler and enemies of liberty and democracy.
Contrary to what has been stated on other posts of this film, it was never "banned" by anyone. Not only was it approved by the Treasury Secretary, it received an Academy Award nomination for "Best Documentary Feature." Even President Roosevelt himself had a hand in approving Donald Duck as the main character.

This is the opening scene and credits from the Hanna-Barbera cult classic The Flintstones: On The Rocks where Fred and Wilma discuss their marital problems with a professional. This hilarious made-for-television movie premiered on Cartoon Network on November 3, 2001 and was co-directed by Chris Savino and David Smith. The film is notable for being William Hanna's last project, Joseph Barbera's last Flintstones-related project and the last Flintstones production to date. Never to broadcast again since 2001 and never released for home video The Flintstones: On The Rocks is truly a rare and very sought after film.
