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.

The biggest problem with this cartoon is that it just isn't funny....
19 December 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Caveman Inki" and at least four other Inki cartoons have been shelved by Warner Brothers (home of Merrie Melodies/Looney Tunes) because the character offends modern sensibilities. So, although audiences of the 1940s and 50s saw no problem with this depiction of a black character with huge lips and a bone in his hair, today it is bound to offend. While this is true, I have to see any cartoon banned (officially or unofficially) for many reasons. First, we need to know how far we've come--and, thankfully, this sort of character is something we wouldn't make today because most folks genuinely don't want to offend. Second, throwing out the entire cartoon is a loss of our history. And, in some cases, the cartoons are good even though they do offend. However, "Caveman Inki" isn't that good--it just isn't funny. Plus the myna bird character was used pretty much the same way seven years earlier. Not a terrible cartoon but one we probably won't miss as it sits on the shelf.
