Light Hearted Fun with Dramatic Usage of Animals
5 September 2003 | by See all my reviews

Yes, the animals were all largely in one pen, but use your imagination, there were numerous automobiles smashing into one another there, perhaps tearing down more than one pen and panicking several animals.

Still, the shots of that herd storming out amongst the burning wrecks was very dramatic and astonishing for me as a kid. I would hate to see it now and have it ruined.

This was a Hanna Barbera movie, I do remember that, and it was supposed to be groundbreaking for the company to have the lion cub die, as well as a gunshot victim.

I haven't seen this thing near about since it first aired, and I really enjoyed the animal scenes, but how did the bears or the lions escape from the same pens with all those livestock?

In the end, for some odd reason there seemed to be nothing left running wild but lions. I deduced it must be because they trained better or something.

Fantasy fun, that's for sure.
