Lion (uncredited)


Once again, the mysterious minah bird hops his syncopated way into Inki's lion-hunting expedition. This time the little black bird has a new reality- defying way to disappear: he hops into a haystack which gradually (and with the same catchy hip-hop) shrinks down to a single straw, which vanishes.

Inki and the Minah Bird (1943)

** (out of 4)

Another Warner cartoon that won't be seeing a legit DVD release anytime soon due to the racial nature of the title character Inki. Inki, a black girl, and her pet bird go out into the jungle where they run into a lion who wants to eat them. I think this one here falls into the category of being convicted for no reason in a politically correct world. There's really nothing too offensive here but I'm sure that's not going to keep warning from giving this an official release. It's not even really worth an official release because the film itself isn't that good. There aren't too many laughs and I thought the animation was rather weak considering it was from the master Jones.
