What Your National Cartoon Says About You
The Character: Mighty Wing
The Synopsis: When a traitorous worker bee redirects labor resources to construct "country homes"—rather than a sorely needed aqueduct—it's up to Mighty Wing to design a new irrigation system that will save the colony's supply of honey.
The Takeaway: It's a thinly veiled allegory for North Korea's heroic survival of the disastrous mid-nineties drought and famine. Further propagandistic proof: Mighty Wing is also beset by the evil armies of the Spiders (a.k.a. the UN) and the Wasps (a.k.a. the Japanese and Americans).
