The Plane Cabby’s Lucky Day (1932)

There is an abundance of startling creativity and ingenuity in this short. Teizo Kato’s The Plane Cabby’s Lucky Day (1932) describes a 1980 automated Japan where urban transportation takes place in the sky. The plane cab driver espouses traditional values, looking after his mother and maintaining a strong sense of justice.
The futuristic utopian setting is more parallel to the early cartoons of the West. There are politically incorrect images of natives who sing and dance all day because they live in paradise.
