This notable short animation by Kinney, unfortunately relative less appreciated than other shorts of the same director (the weakest Pigs is Pigs was nominee for Academy Award the same year), shows a good sense of irony with American society topics. A lion, captured in Africa was accidentally free in New York streets. From the emperor of the jungle to anonymous situation in another jungle, the concrete one. Here, the short parodies with modern individualism through the collective society rules – the feline is advertised by a traffic guard to get his right position to use the crosswalk. And even with some American institutions like the Lion's Club and the Salvation Army. Further has a delicious nonsense a la Kafka or Ionesco: the lion is just perceived as lion when uses elegant clothes like a gentleman.
