THE LOVABLE SANKICHI THE MONKEY

Here's another 30s Japanese cartoon that puts combat on the same level as video games, supposedly to prepare children to live with a world war. Good transformations and explosions. The use of sound is imaginative; occasionally more live action than cartoon. And it's the only foreign cartoon I've seen with an "American-style" cartoon opening title! By Mitsuyo Seo.

Again I'll post DUCK BRIGADE, also by Mitsuyo Seo from 1940. Anti-war ending in this cartoon in the American style. A year later, forget it. Soon, Mitsuyo Seo would be directing his infamous Momotaro propaganda features.
