A 1928 Disney animation, which predates the creation of Mickey Mouse, has resurfaced in Japan, the media reported on Friday. The Asahi Shimbun daily said that the cartoon short, entitled “Neck n’ Neck”, was part of the collection of an anime history researcher, Yasushi Watanabe, who bought it in Osaka while still a high school student some 70 years ago, reports CNN. At the time the film, which had been given the Japanese title “Mickey Manga Spide”, or “Mickey cartoon speedy”, cost 500 yen ($4). It features a character, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, who, in the two-minute consumer version owned by the researcher, is chased by a dog traffic cop while on a date. A longer version of five minutes was also produced. (IANS)
