Merry Christmas from after the apocalypse

Earlier this evening, I watched the film It’s Always Fair Weather (1955), which is pretty great, but is not the focus of this post. Rather, it’s about one of the animated shorts that is included on the DVD, a strange little holiday themed Hanna/Barbera cartoon titled “Good Will to Men.” I’m kind of fascinated by this short for a number of reasons, most notably because it’s a Christmas tale set after humanity has been wiped out in an atomic war, and animals (in particular, mice) have inherited the Earth

The short is well worth a watch, and if you are so inclined, you can do so by clicking on the video below.
