The hyena could have been used less, but it was funny.
10 October 2002 | by (Karachi, Pakistan) – See all my reviews

A really funny cartoon, even though some scenes that really didn't look like Chuck Jones. The chimp scene was not too funny, though it was evidently trying. The hyena was a good idea, but it was over-used. The overall plot was good, a sort of base that could really develop into a great cartoon. The stork (trying to balance on one leg) was a stroke of genius, as behind it, you could see "infantius," (possibly) the origin of Coyote and Roadrunner's hilarious scientific names.
