YouTube cartoons from China

Three cartoons supporting the Communist Party of China's campaign against corruption have been big hits on Youku, a Chinese version of YouTube.

They are combined in the YouTube video below (7 minutes total), but beware.

There are subtitles, but they are fast moving and hard to read. You might want to stop the video and read them the first time through. Then show the video again when everyone knows the topic of each scene. President Xi is recognizable, but no other characters are. They are probably symbolic, but most of the meanings went over my head. If you do better than I did, add comments at the bottom of this post.

The Sixth Edition of What You Need to Know is available here.
