True. I was being a bit vague about when exactly "those days" were, because although the animation claims to be from the 1930s, the style and execution at least looks far more primitive than you'd expect from something that late. So coupled with having other things that you'd only expect if it was recorded on video, it's a bit of a mish-mash.
