Title Card

Recruiting Daze is a 1940 animated short starring Punchy.


Military humor featuring military equipment, Punchy, and an assortment of other characters. It's a whole army in a daze throughout this wacky nonsense in a soldier camp where the awkward squad makes everything awkward until powder magazines blow up, sausage balloons are sliced for lunch, and a Big Brass council of war argues over tic-tac-toe! This army would make an enemy laugh himself helpless!

  • Leonard Maltin claims that the director of this cartoon is actually Alex Lovy
