Storyline

Fuzzy-Wuzzy is an aborigine, hunting kangaroos while riding an ostrich. He spots one, working out on a punching bag; after a bit of to and fro, he lands in the roo's pouch. The animal isn't too bright, and tries to evict the hunter with a stick of dynamite, which turns the kangaroo into a lot of tiny roos; they jump into the pouch and reassemble. The kangaroo pulls up the ostrich's head, which was buried in the sand; he cuts it off, and it becomes a firehose in his face. The hunter crosses a stream on his ostrich, which is eaten by a crocodile (a bit of violence, and the ostrich is freed). Finally, a flurry of boomerangs is repulsed by the kangaroo and they shave off Fuzzy Wuzzy's hair; after the hunter suggests the kangaroo "pick on someone his own size" they start shrinking, until they are the size of bugs and the ostrich eats both of them.

Kongo-Roo is one very awful cartoon from the Columbia series
17 January 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just watched on Thadblog this cartoon which was the first in his series of "Saturday Bowl of WTF". This has an aborigine (stereotyped with the typical big lips) hunting for a kangaroo with the help of his ostrich. Lots of gags that make no sense at all abound here though the full animation is good for the period this Columbia cartoon was made. Stan Freberg did the voices so if you're a fan of his that might the only thing this cartoon has to recommend it. All I feel like saying is if you're a animation completist, by all means give Kongo-Roo a look. Otherwise, stay away. Oh, and the dumb voice that Freberg uses sounds a lot like that character in the Warner Bros. cartoons that always calls anybody he meets, "George"...
