Dr. Seuss wrote a number of military orientation documentaries under Frank Capra in the 1940s. The first one is Your Job in Germany, which doesn't take to the German people so kindly, but the second is Our Job in Japan, which seems to take a much more sympathetic light. He also made another one about Japan, Design for Death, but it doesn't seem like any copies exist on the internet of that, particularly disappointing because it won the Oscar for Best Documentary. These are interesting because it showed the post-war strategic occupation mindset. He would also help make the comedic Private Snafu series of cartoon shorts.
