A-tome, B-3, and CD
Matching production background

Yeah! Thank you so much to the person who identified this cel for me. This anime was made from a children’s book called My Father’s Dragon written by Ruth Stiles Gannett and published in the 1940s.

The author also created the black and white drawings for this book. From what I can tell, the anime stays quite true to those original illustrations. This cel shows the main character, Elmer Elevator. He befriends an old alley cat who tells him about a dragon being held captive on Wild Island. He decides to run away from home to rescue the dragon.
