During WW2, propagandists relied on pop culture images to promote the war in the US. Characters such as Mickey Mouse and Captain America were used to raise morale, provide funding, and unite America towards a singular cause. Looking back at these efforts, its almost incredible the extent to which propaganda went. You would never assume that Donald Duck would fight Hitler or Mickey Mouse is selling war bonds. However, these propaganda has quite an effect on the youth at the time. I would like to highlight these effects by imagining a modern pop culture icon marketed towards children undergoing the same propaganda efforts.
