The China Plate is a 1931 Silly Symphonies animated film.
The short is based on the Willow pattern legend, with some major differences, including a dragon. In the short, there is an oriental scene (Willow pattern) on a China plate that comes to life. Once it comes to life, it then tells the story of two young lovers who are disturbed by not only an overweight Emperor but also a dragon that not only eats the emperor but also breathes fire.
