Storyline

In the African jungle, the narrator introduces us to the various birds living there and to wildlife photographer Donald Duck intent on getting some pictures. Unfortunately, all his attempts to photograph birds are ruined by the "clown of the jungle", the Aracuan Bird. Example: when Donald attempts to photograph a chorus line of hummingbirds, the Aracuan Bird interrupts the picture with a Russian kick dance. Donald becomes aggravated to the point where he gives chase but the bird always manages to outsmart Donald and make short work of his sanity. Written by Matt Yorston <george.y@ns.sympatico.ca>

Two versions!
23 October 2002 | by yleSee all my reviews

There are two versions of this -- one broadcasted every Christmas in Scandinavia. The second (original?) is a bit longer with more cartoon violent gags put into it towards the end. Very Tex Avery-ish and highly amusing. Did Disney's "family values" censorship kick in somewhere? Both are great fun, but try to get hold of the extended one.
