Sheet music:Der Fuehrer's Face from the Walt Disney Motion Picture

The Strong National Museum of Play

Beginning with the early musical short features he created, such as "Silly Symphonies," Walt Disney began a tradition of publishing printed music for all the songs his musical films made popular. His firm eventually formed its own publishing house and then even its own record company to continue this practice. Disney's sheet music was typically simple to learn and play, which made it more appealing to his generally young audiences.

Even though Disney pulled the propaganda short film "Der Feuhrer's Face" out of circulation after its first release, his firm did authorize sheet music commemorating the already famous title song, complete with image of Donald Duck throwing a tomato at the caricatured face of Adolf Hitler.
