Pokémon Star In Very Cool Old-Timey Cartoon

Pokémon’s official Japanese Kids TV channel today released something definitely worth four minutes of your time: a short called Chase the Beans, starring Scraggy and Mimikyu.

Animated in the style of old 1930s, Fleischer-esque cartoons, there’s no dialogue, just an incredible soundtrack and equally impressive animation.

Oh wow... that header gif, that is definitely not the smartest thing to put in a kids cartoon right now 😬 I feel like we live in a world where we couldn’t have Tom and Jerry or Looney Tunes as they were, it just wouldn’t fly these days.

As it is, that gif gave me unpleasant flashbacks to “Hereditary”, the horror movie. Oof.
