In Africa, 2 expat "brothers" are usually at each other's throats but now have a common enemy. Ormond's men are shooting or catching much of the wildlife for export as well as forcing the locals off their land. Lots of fun fights follow.
In Africa, many years ago, Slim and Tom don't like it when a German tyrant, starts selling all of the African wildlife to Canadian Zoo's! Slim and Tom must teach this guy a lesson by beating the hell out of him and his gang, left and right!Written by

The song "Grau Grau Grau" was actually sung by Bud Spencer. In the English language dub, this is the only time Spencer's voice is left intact, his thick Italian accent coming through very distinctively. See more »
After the lunch Tom opens a set of cages with lions (and a cheetah) in them. He opens them from right to left. But the 2 cages we see him opening in close-up, still have closed cages with lions in them to their right. See more »
Nearly 8 minutes of footage was cut from the German release. Gone is the infamous and much talked about "Butterfly" sequence. The boxing match between Bud Spencer and Joe Bugner at the end on the boat is also missing about 1 minute of fighting. See more »
Plenty of laughs and fight scenes in this one and this is the only one of their movies where Spencer comes across a guy who is nearly as tough as he is.
Hard to deal with seeing wild animals locked up in cages, but I suppose that it's good that Spencer and Hill were on a mission to set them all free. Some of the scenes really did look like animals were being set free for real.
BTW, hippopotami only feature in the first scene. A laughing mechanical one in particular.
