There's no change in the Animation it's still pleasing just like the previous episode, however there were points were it got cheesy like in scenes where we see explosions or in the scene when they're climbing a mountain. What's funny about the episode is we see Uncle Jimbo and his friend Ned break all the rules of hunting by just shooting every animal they see and say it's coming after us (When it really isn't) and instead of them just caring rifles and Shotguns, they carry weapons that you can only use in war (Of course they are Vietnam war Veterans). Another thing that's funny about the Episode is how cheesy (In a good way) the Mayor and the town's people react to the news about the Volcano. What's also surprising about this Episode I didn't hear as much as a "BLEEP" on the Language, in fact I don't think they said any Colorful language that's good enough to be "BLEEPED". Even though the Animation got cheesy and we didn't hear any colorful language it was still a fun episode!
