Britain produced a large number of largely neglected propoganda animations during the First World War. Although often crude in technique they combined lively satire with an illustrative tradition in the work of practicioners such as Lancelot Speed and Dudley Buxton. Many had more in common with the broad humorous milieu of the comic strip and postcard than the official propoganda of the time which attempted to demonise the 'evil hun'. In their portrayal of the Kaiser, in particular, these animations demonstrated the power of ridicule in the propoganda war.
