Storyline

Back in prehistoric times, a thundering earthquake splits a mountain wide open, and out hops the minah bird, to alternately bedevil, mystify and rescue Inki as he hunts dinosaurs. Meanwhile, a pelt-bedecked caveman persists in his attempts to make a pot of stew, which keeps getting overturned each time Inki, dinosaur, sabre-toother tiger and minah bird zip past.

Just understand...
10 July 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

...that "Caveman Inki" was a product of the old Euro-American view of Africa, given how they draw Inki. As long as we understand that, it's a pretty fun cartoon, as he persists in his attempts to trap the mysterious minah bird - with its syncopated walk - and gets chased by a lion. The whole scene in the dinosaur's belly is quite cool.

If they eventually release these cartoons on DVD, I figure that they'll probably have to give some sort of disclaimer identifying that they never meant any malice to people of African descent; they just didn't know any better. As it was, this cartoon seemed like a sort of place holder in between the really great ones (in 1950, Chuck Jones also released "The Scarlet Pumpernickel" and "Rabbit of Seville"). Worth seeing.
