This is another old Japanese animated short from the 1920s found to be among the older examples of animation from Japan. Like many older shorts of the time period, The Black Cat is rather barebones with what it offers up for a plot as the song-and-dance number from the cats is the main attraction of the short. This is only worth seeing for the historical value of it being among one of Japan's earliest animated efforts and the first of which having a music track as it otherwise has little to offer for rewatchability.
