les chinoiseries de placide

Here's an old, interesting blast from the past, a primitive cartoon from 1930 featuring all sorts of weird racist caricatures and details. Slant-eyed chinese laundry cats and opium-smoking rats. At one point, it looks like the Chinese rats try to kidnap a female mouse, but then this mouse dude in a car comes to her rescue. Beware the scary Chinese laundry/opium den! Yeah, yellow peril is all over this one. That's racist! All that aside, the piece actually rather boring. (Thanks, Wayland.)
