Position Firing is a fascinating military training cartoon film from the days of World War II
25 January 2018 | by tavmSee all my reviews

Just watched this-an originally classified training cartoon film short-on YouTube. It features the voice of Mel Blanc as "Trigger Joe" who is on a plane with an attached gun with a crystal ball on it as a radar for aiming at enemy aircraft. But that other plane breaks that ball and almost kills Joe so the narrator tells him the proper way to aim his target with the visual aid meant to teach the untrained enlisted people in the audience the same thing. Good humor mixed with the serious teaching make this quite a fascinating curio for anyone interested in these kind of things. So that's a good recommendation for Position Firing.
