All war propoganda boils down to;

They are evil caricatures, we are good caricatures, we win if you buy war bonds.


(also, is that the first recorded example of an anime panty flash at the end there?)

But it's not war propaganda. Japan attacked China in 1937.

IIRC they invaded Manchuria several years earlier. And this cartoon makes it pretty darn clear that they were gearing up for a scrap with Uncle Sam.

That's a reference to the story of Urashima Taro at 6:20-6:30, when Mickey Mouse is enveloped by a white cloud and ages.

In case you were wondering.

So it seems the Japanese genre known as "totally inexplicable" dates back quite a few years
Syd Midnight
To be fair, they were competing with Max Fleischer, who set the "inexplicable and unsettling" bar pretty high.

Remember that Japan characterized its wars in Asia as wars of liberation from Western colonialism. These sort of cartoons were made to remind Japanís new vassals of the glorious beneficence of the Empire of Japan.
