Design: Disney characters (left) Daisy Duck and (right) Bugs Bunny appear on this brightly-coloured children's record label; whether or not legal permission was obtained for their usage is unknown but doubtful, while the cartoon chick at the centre (Chicken Little?) is as yet unidentified and may have been custom-drawn to represent one of the stories on the record ("the sky is falling!"). The purple background contrasts well with the other colours, especially with the yellow, its opposite on the colour spectrum.

History: The name 'Teichiku' is an abbreviation of Taikoku Chikuonki ('Imperial Records'), the former name of the company. Presently, the company is involved in the manufacture of karaoke equipment.
