Meet King Joe This cartoon argues that the American factory worker, Joe, was the “king of the workers of the world” due to his higher wages, productivity, and shorter working hours. It is one of a series of animated Technicolor films that celebrated American free enterprise produced by Harding College in Searcy, Arkansas, in the late 1940s and early 1950s. The anti-communism Cold War films, funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, were distributed widely and seen by millions of students, workers, and theatergoers. This short film from the Library of Congress collections has been made available by the National Film Preservation Foundation. close
