Cartoon Production Information:


Chuck Jones' first Inki cartoon.

Future Inki cartoons would also have Fingal's Cave Overture, Op. 26, by Felix Mendelssohn, as theme music.

This cartoon is not currently shown on American television because of characters, scenes or situations that portray potentially offensive, negative or otherwise currently socially or politically unacceptable content which may be perceived as fostering potentially negative stereotypes of Blacks.

Retitled "The Little Lion Hunter" in the Blue Ribbon re-release.

Comments By:
Jones practiced dialogue-less pantomime with this cartoon series. It would eventually lead to the Roadrunner cartoons exactly 10 years later.
