The Telegraph reports:
The director of a Norwegian museum claimed yesterday to have discovered cartoons drawn by Adolf Hitler during the Second World War.
William Hakvaag, the director of a war museum in northern Norway, said he found the drawings hidden in a painting signed "A. Hitler" that he bought at an auction in Germany.
He found coloured cartoons of the characters Bashful and Doc from the 1937 Disney film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, which were signed A.H., and an unsigned sketch of Pinocchio as he appeared in the 1940 Disney film.
Hitler tried to make a living as an artist before his rise to power. While there was no independent confirmation yesterday that the drawings were the work of the Nazi leader, Hitler is known to have owned a copy of Snow White, the classic animated adaptation of a German fairy tale, and to have viewed it in his private cinema.
I'm extremely skeptical, but what the hell: Here are the drawings attributed to the Fuehrer:
Note that there are no sketches of Mickey Mouse. In 1931, a Nazi organ declared, "Youth, where is your self-esteem? Mickey Mouse is the most shabby, miserable ideal ever conceived….Healthy feeling by itself should actually tell every decent girl and every honest boy that the dirty and filth-covered vermin, the greatest bacteria carrier in the animal kingdom, cannot be the ideal type of animal. Don't we have anything better to do, than to decorate our dress with the filthy animal, because American business Jews want to profit?…Throw out the vermin! Down with Mickey Mouse, wear the Swastika cross!"
