THE CARTOON CRYPT: Teeny Tiny Samurai Versus the Polka-Dot Demon


This cartoon is called Issun-boshi no Shusse (1929) on YouTube. It appears to feature an ancestor of S. Clay Wilson’s Checkered Demon. Searching for information on it I ran across this page refers to it as The Tiny One Makes it Big, and attributes it to the production company Nakano Mangasha. That page also is selling dvd’s that include a number of the old Japanese cartoons featured here recently, as well as many others, in their Japanese Anime Classic Collection [4-DVD box set].
