Three Tales was one of the first domestic anime ever televised. It comprised of three stories: "The Third Plate" (第三の皿) by Hirosuke Hamada, "Oppel and the Elephant" (オッペルと象) by Kenji Miyazawa, and "Sleepy Town" (眠い町) by Mimei Ogawa.
Experimental anime from animation pioneer Yoji Kuri from 1960.
One of the first films of Okamoto Tadanari, a silent puppet animated film.
The narrated film describes the adventures and misadventures of a group of tadpoles in search of their mother. It is one of Te Wei's first attempts to break away from Western style animation and aim for a painterly style influenced by Qi Baishi and more in keeping with native Chinese aesthetic sensibilities.
