1929 Japanese Cartoon: Kobutori

This is a delightful 1929 Japanese cartoon about two men with different fathers, who both have lumps on the sides of their faces. The Japanese title is “Kobutori”, which means “Taking the Lump”. The cartoon has title cards in Japanese, but for the most part they are not needed.
