what going on?


One of a handful of animated short propaganda cartoons (“political posters”) that survived World War II. Cinema-Circus, or Kino-Circus, ridicules Hitler and his cronies in three short skits.

The cartoon is lighthearted and playful. It is even introduced by an animated Charlie Chaplin. It’s interesting to see Soviet art ridicule Hitler rather than make him appear threatening. After all, in 1942 Nazi Germany was still a major threat to the Soviet Union. The German army was still stuck in Stalingrad and laying siege to Leningrad.
