The first site is a personal site, and thus is not a real legit source of information.

As to those animated shorts, they were meant to show how great being in America is...

The reason why these shorts were not shown was not because Walt Disney was trying to hide his alleged Nazi ties, but rather it was felt the Nazi overtones were too strong. Clearly you are looking too much into this.

As to your topic, the reference 'Disney Nazi' refers to folks who are really gung-ho Disney fans, not supporters of racists :D

"Disney and Hoover" (http://www.geocities...ws_me/nazi.html), which has Disney's "Der Fuehrer's Face" and the picture of Mickey Mouse scaring a child, has been updated to include a link to where I originally got the video (http://www.teemings.com/shorts/disney/year...ehrersface.html) as well as a link to a blurb about an unfinished Disney film extolling the virtues of the Nazi way (http://www.bcdb.com/....cgi?film=38269).

(The Der Fuehrer's Face video requires the VDO codec available from http://online.ksu.ed...y/download.html)

There is also Disney's "Education for Death", depicting a child's life in Nazi Germany (available at IFILM: http://www.ifilm.com...ifilmid=2408800), and "Chicken Little", an anti-Nazi film showing the evils of mass hysteria (info at http://www.bcdb.com/...d.cgi?film=6317).

Again, all these films were made to make fun of the Nazis, but instead came off a little too strong. You're reading too much into this. Walt Disney is not a Nazi.

These shorts were originally scheduled for release with this years batch of collectors DVD tins. It was scrapped after it was announced due to current events. These were made with the blessing of the government during WWII and played as shorts before the feature films.
As far as an unfinished film "extolling" nazism, that would explain why it is unfinished. Many animators have a "different" sense of humor and their idea of funny may not be to others (just ask my wife :notamused: ) This would not be the only instance of production being halted on a project for that reason.
