Vintage Nip Toon.
12 April 2004 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

Fabulous wide screen cartoon feature from the days before Manga and anime had entered common our toon speak. This one was particularly imposing in it's first generation colour with the Japanese track.

Don't expect too much connection to the fairy tale we had thrust on us as kids but the chase down the spiraling INSIDE of the mountain remains printed in the memory after thousands of cheapo kiddie toons have faded.

This one comes from the days of the first Astro Boy series and while it has a style and imagery of it's own, it's not hard to imagine the people who did them downing tea and other substances together out of hours. Note Hayao Miyazaki's credit here. It would be particularly interesting to get to see a collection of his work from this period.
