Classic Japanese Animation

Check out these two examples of super-rare (and perhaps, unintentionally funny) Japanese cartoons from the first half of the 20th century:

Ikuo Oishi’s UGOKIE-KO-RI-NO-TATEHIKI (FOX AND ASIAN RACCOON CHEAT EACH OTHER) – 1933

Kenzo Masaoka’s KUMO-TO-CHURIPPU (SPIDER AND TULIP) – 1943
