Not animation art in the sense of other items in this gallery, this section displays twenty printed cardboard images from this series that were designed as a kamishibai or “paper theater” adaptation of this anime. For a proper introduction to this once-popular Japanese art form, see the commentary for the first image.

Otherwise, browse through these images, which provide a brief introduction to the premise of this series, its main characters, and the typical situations of the plot. The descriptions include translations of the scripts on the cards, courtesy of my fellow curator KuroiTsubasa4. The thumbnails add scans of the original Japanese script on the backs of the cards.
