Mr. Hook, "Take Heed Mr. Tojo!" - In 1943, Walter Lantz Productions, under the supervision of the Bureau of Aeronautics, made the first and only colorized short film of this series. It took six weeks to finish the short film, however the United States Navy found the effort well spent. The short helped more Navy personnel to buy war bonds than any other war bond project. Mr. Hook was designed by Hank Ketcham, the creator of "Dennis The Menace" comics.
