The short Broken Down Film is just that: broken. The film has aged poorly and the projector has trouble keeping the frame straight, but the protagonist is well aware of this. Exploiting these conditions the bumbling cowboy attempts to rescue a damsel in distress and win her heart.
This is more of a recommendation based on style rather than actual content. Legend of the Forest and Broken Down Film are both in the style of early western animation, both in the visual appearance of the characters and musical sound design. If you liked the 'classic' style of animation of one of these, then it is well worth checking out the other.

If you happen to be a shapeshifting fox, however, the time is ripe for a exploring a run down temple nearby, no matter how ghastly its appearance may be. As it happens, sometimes appearances are not deceiving: the temple is haunted by a mischevious tanuki who does his damnedest to scare the intruder away! A fierce battle of wits between the mythical creatures starts. The tanuki seems to know every trick in the book, but the fox has been around the block a few times too...
Ugokie Kori no Tatehiki shorts is a piece of animation history, while Legend of the Forest purports to tell you animation history through its evolution of styles. Also both are frankly very dull, so if you actually liked one you may also like the other.
