| Since when do lions have Irish accents?
"The Lion's Busy" is only the second Beaky Buzzard cartoon that I've seen after "Bugs Bunny Gets the Boid". This time, an Irish-accented lion named Leo is celebrating his tenth birthday when Beaky decides to turn the guy into a meal, given that members of the species Felis leo apparently don't usually live longer than ten years. So, Beaky spends the whole cartoon trying to subdue Leo, while Leo keeps trying to get away. The whole end scene on the moon was sort of a shocker, sort of not.

I got the feeling that this was one of the cartoons that the Termite Terrace crowd made to fill the time between the really famous ones (1950 also saw the release of "The Scarlet Pumpernickel" and "The Rabbit of Seville"), but it's an OK way to pass time. Available on YouTube.
