Early Anime Shows Japanese Hatred of Mickey Mouse


Well, no wonder Japan beefed up its military in the ’30s. As this 1934 cartoon shows, the Japanese were simply peaceful animal/doll/toy people who were terrified of being attacked by an army of serpents and bullet-shooting bats led by Mickey Mouse (and frankly, who isn’t?). So Japan calls in its mythological heroes to fight them until about the 5-minute mark, when things get too fucked up for me to process. Enjoy. (Via Pink Tentacle)
