The Fierce Canine Army has been given the day off, but Norakuro has no home to return to. After he goes to a yakitori (fried chicken) shop for a drink, he goes to the park to take a short nap. Just then, soldiers from the Mountain Monkey Army, who have stolen some secret documents, make their appearances and Norakuro goes after them in hot pursuit. When the Mountain Monkey troops appear to have made their escape in a hot air balloon, Norakuro, as a last desperate measure, climbs into a tube designed for launching fireworks and blasts himself right into the balloon. He retrieves the stolen documents, but the plot unfolds in an unexpected manner.

Well, you get what you see, if you've read the synopsis you're pretty much seen the short cause the only thing omitted from it is that the whole story is just a dream. It's easy to be harsh on something like this but as a short and amusing animation for kids made 80+ years ago it does what it sets out to do without wasting time. If anything it aged relatively well compared to some of the anime produced around WW2 cause it still moves smoothly and has comedic bits that I think most people will still find at least slightly amusing, in particular Norakuro ...

Okay film. Not a real worthwhile watch without sound. The story was based on war. One thing i could not understand was the near the ending. Was the papers chicken? Chicken scented? Or was there papers as well as chicken? One thing i liked about the story was the artist even though used animals instead of humans kept in mind the attributes they had.
