Hmmm...It's a Possibility

It would seem appropriate that Adolf Hitler’s personal Hell would be an eternal land populated by Jews. I doubt Tex Avery was going for anything that weighty or symbolic in his MGM cartoon, “The Blitz Wolf.” He was merely using a catchphrase from Kitzel on “The Al Pearce Show” in the cartoon’s final scene where Adolf Wolf is blown to you-know-where.

This scene is the work of the great Preston Blair. Irv Spence, Ray Abrams and Ed Love were the other animators in the first Avery cartoon released by Metro in 1942.
