Old Japanese Animated Shorts

Post by BettyLouSpence »

At this website are Japanese cartoons from mainly the 20s and 30s, though there are some from the very early 40s and the 1910s as well. Simply click on a thumbnail, click the box with the play button - this will open the cartoon in another window. There may be an option for English subtitles - look just below the video. It will say in English if there are subs available. Happy watching! :)

Awesome!
