"This is Dangobei, the laziest man in Baghdad"

This is one of (if not *the*) earliest cut-out-animation films from Japan.

As far as mid-1920s cut-out animation goes, the animation quality is decent but nothing spectacular. I appreciated the effective usage of some cinematography effects, namely the fades, spotlight cut-outs and that unusual wreath-blossoming-spoitlight effect. I especially liked how many of the spotlight cut-outs had certain pieces intentionally sticking out of the spotlight, such as the antlers of Dangobei's helmet.

In terms of story and writing, there are some excellent gags in this short film. I especially laughed at the angry tree and the soldiers' over-the-top siege tactics. read more

-black and white
-art had a layered appearance.

Nice as the art and plot was i felt the story was improperly told. The main character from the beginning is marked as 'lazy' mix that with the earn happiness message doesn't really blend. I think some chances here and there would not only work better but would help support the message. I am sure i get read more
