Barbara Jo Allen,
This is a silly little cartoon from Disney. It begins in Africa with a lion. He's very proud to be the King of the Beasts. However, he's soon captured and brought to America. There he escapes but a very strange thing happens. In New York, it's the lion who is afraid and not the people. In fact, the New Yorkers take it all in stride and mostly ignore him--making him feel rather inadequate! But, fortunately, it all ends well for this cute lion.
The artwork for this short is unusual. The lion appears very much like animation of the 1940s--finely detailed. But the people and backgrounds of the city are more 1950s in style--more minimalistic. This works, however, to help point out how out of place he is in this world. And, the cartoon was amazingly fresh and original. The only negative is that some are bound to be offended by the big-lipped natives shown at the beginning of the cartoon due to changing sensibilities.
