"The Barber of Seville" with Woody Woodpecker (1944)

Released during the Second World War, this cartoon has Woody Woodpecker reporting to the barbershop for a “Victory” haircut in support of the war effort. 

When he finds that the barber is out, he decides to cut his own hair, as well as do a little “business” on the side.  Naturally, he manages to offend every ethnic group in existence with disastrous, but comic outcomes. Remember, this cartoon is from before political correctness was invented.

Released in April of 1944, this was a Walter Lantz Production distributed by Universal studios. This was the 10th Woody Woodpecker cartoon released.
