Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Nazi, and Walt
A Norwegian museum directer has found 4 sketches of Disney characters, signed AH. The man says the writing matches handwriting samples of Adolf Hitler; He further claims that Hitler worked for Disney. Did Hitler doodle Pinocchio?
This story sounds like a gag from the pages of The Onion, but it’s true — and the evidence that they are works of Hitler’s evil hand is compelling:
1: The sketches were found inside the frame of an oil painting of a Bavarian landscape, signed “A Hitler, 1940″, which the directer purchased in Germany.
2: Hitler was a failed artist, who was rejected from a prestigious Vienna art school.
3: The rumor mill is abundant with accusations that Walt Disney was a Nazi sympathizer.
4: “It has been well documented that Adolf Hitler watched (Snow White) with a roomfull of children, and was delighted by Disney’s adaptation of the German fairy tale.” – Wikipedia
