See what happened when a Disney animated a political advert

This is from the 1952 US Presidential election, animated by Roy Disney, nephew of Walt. Quite fun – and also a healthy reminder about slipping into believing that politics now is awful compared to an imagined previous Golden Age of rational debate based on voters making a detailed analysis of contrasting policy positions. That Golden Age never existed.

Ike, aka Dwight Eisenhower, won the election along with his Vice President, one Richard M. Nixon, later twice a Presidential election winner himself.

Thankfully, huge babies didn’t feature in any of their campaigns.
