If this is the 1930’s, it’s probably just a poorly drawn black man. Japan has always had a thing for American Jazz music. Swing and big band music was all the rage then.

Cartoons and other motif from the American entertainment era probably influenced the design. Or maybe it was a traveling theater project. That’s really interesting.
