Out hunting in the jungle with his spear, African native boy Inki keeps narrowly missing his prey: a parrot, a giraffe, even a butterfly. Then there's that weird black bird with the syncopated hop who keeps popping up out of nowhere, only to disappear mysteriously once again. Back to big game hunting, Inki puts his ear to the ground, not noticing the ferocious lion sneaking up on him.Written by

No doubt "Little Lion Hunter" seemed funnier before people widely understood it as racist, with Inki portrayed as having bulging lips. It was the era before most Americans had studied Africa seriously, and so they knew it as the "Dark Continent", populated by savages prancing around in loin cloths (which eventually got replaced by the image of helpless peasants). The individuals behind this cartoon probably weren't trying to be mean, they just didn't know any better. I guess that as long as we understand the context, this cartoon is OK. I think.
Why couldn't there have ever been a story of someone from Africa teaching air-head, materialistic white people how to live communally?
