A good example of a period cartoon
13 May 2006 | by otterlotSee all my reviews

A clever Max Fleischer-esquire cartoon short from Toho studios, whose title roughly translates as "Moving Picture - Fox versus Tanuki (i.e., Raccoon-dogs) Pulling (pranks)".

Comparable to Flip the frog, Betty Boop, or Felix the cat cartoons from about the same period, it has synced sound (including a nifty soundtrack with traditional Japanese instruments) and a lot of visual puns and interesting camera angles.

The plot summary is as follows: A farmer walking in the woods is frightened away by a shapeshifting fox, who then disguises himself as a samurai and makes his way to a temple, haunted by a young shapeshifting tanuki whose various attempts to frighten the fox/samurai away fail. The young tanuki telephones his father, and they join forces against the samurai.
