SUMMARY
From J. McIntire, Silent animated films at the Library of Congress: Concerns American soldiers in Europe after the armstice [sic]. One goes AWOL with "Joy" (Miss AWOL) and after a series of mishaps with her, he is thrown in a guard house while his fellow soldiers go home.

From Origin of American animation 1900-1921 notes: A cautionary tale for troops impatient to return home after the November 1918 armistice.

Two World War I propaganda pieces, for home-front and overseas consumption, respectively. W.S.S. Thriftettes is a promotion for war savings stamps, reputed here to help confine Germanys Kaiser to a circus cage. AWOL, with simple but effective line drawing from animator-entrepreneur Charles Bowers, is a cautionary tale for troops impatient to return home after the November 1918 armistice and brings the "Joys and Gloom" to elaborate life.

CREATED/PUBLISHED
United States : [American Motion Picture Co., ca. 1919].
