"Remember the Alamo!"

"Remember the Maine!"

"Remember Pearl Harbor!"

 

The above rallying cries have been used to motivate American citizens to action during times of war. A December 9, 1941 editorial in The Oregonian newspaper claims to have first used the catchphrase "Remember Pearl Harbor." In the months that followed, all manner of retail items were emblazoned with the phrase and sold to Americans who wanted revenge for what had happened to her sailors and soldiers that Sunday morning on December 7th.

Disney artist Hank Porter created the posters in this thread in early 1942 for the Aircraft Warning Service. Five of the images came from the Porter family and one from the Disney Archives.

One of the posters in the series features a caricature of a stereotyped Japanese soldier. This illustration is rare. While many of Hollywoods other cartoon studios often portrayed enemy stereotypes in their cartoons, Disney rarely did.
