Storyline

Out hunting in the jungle with his spear, African native boy Inki keeps narrowly missing his prey: a parrot, a giraffe, even a butterfly. Then there's that weird black bird with the syncopated hop who keeps popping up out of nowhere, only to disappear mysteriously once again. Back to big game hunting, Inki puts his ear to the ground, not noticing the ferocious lion sneaking up on him. Written by Paul Penna <tterrace@wco.com>

Inki, the Minah Bird and a lion
24 January 2009 | by (The world of artists) – See all my reviews

"The Little Lion Hunter" is the less good of the 3 cartoons with a lion. That is, of course, in my opinion. But still, it is quite enjoyable, fun and entertaining. Besides, the artwork is pretty good.

In each one of these 3 cartoons, there is a lion. In each one of them, the lion is different because it's not the same lion. However, they all have in common the fact that the lion is a male and is hungry. In each one of them, the lion is beautiful, although the lion of "Inki and the Minah Bird" is the prettiest of the three. Also, the lion of "Inki and the Minah Bird" is most humorous, more easy-going, more goofy, more like a lion one can play with. The lions of "The Little Lion Hunter" and "Inki and the Lion" are more fierce, although still playful enough.

In all of these 3 cartoons, the lion always loses, which is too bad.

Nevertheless, it is a worthy cartoon.
