What propaganda cartoon was playing in San Diego MOPA in 2005-06?

Help me track down a WWII propaganda cartoon that played in the San Diego Museum of Photographic Arts' entrance gallery, probably sometime in 2006? I have a memory of watching a WWII propaganda cartoon on an early date with my eventual wife. We sat & chatted on the bench in the entrance gallery while the cartoon was projected onto the big wall in between the entrance & exit thresholds. I remember an imp-like creature, possibly doing some sabotage. I'm pretty sure it wasn't Dr. Seuss' "Private SNAFU", although I suppose I could be wrong. I don't remember it being particularly racist, which ought to help narrow it down a bit. Do you know which cartoon that was? I'd really like to get a picture of that imp from my memory.

Could it have been Falling Hare or Russian Rhapsody?

Could it have been a gremlin? (image search on wwii gremlin)

Aha, yes, it was definitely gremlins - Falling Hare and Russian Rhapsody look like great leads, although I thought it was a black and white cartoon... That could just be bad memory though.

Thanks for the help!
