    Episode 1

    The lion sleeps tonight, and works today.

    There was some amusing bits of humor to be had as Toucan sure loves to go over the top, while the lizard is always losing his tail in some way. And of course, there's the lion that's a hard worker, but not exactly the kind of guy who would be the king of the jungle. And then there's the mixer that was amusing as it showed off the lady animals there. While the humor is solid, the animation is another thing as being done by a no-name studio, the animation quality is just terrible. I was expecting this to be just a short. But it's a full-length show and I must say that this show would have been much better served as a short seeing that it looks like the animators were struggling to come up with stuff to fill the episodes.

    So like always, trial period rules apply. While the animation was quite tough on the eyes, the content was amusing enough to warrant consideration for my watchlist.

      Episode 2

      Kappas are real.

      While the show continues to be plagued by bad animation, the jokes are pretty good and it helps that Toucan is a little bit less annoying. Lion eats quite a lot and is feeling the need to diet. And then there's the trip out to the wild where they see that kappas are not just a thing of legend and despite their scary looks, they speak in an unexpected way. Then there's an employee running away and ends up being captured leading the Lion to think about taking a new job. More funny stuff once again as the comedy is better in this episode than the last that relied too much on Toucan's playboy attitude and Lizard's chopped tail.

        Episode 3

        Dead on arrival.

        And now, the episode is focused on Toucan being Toucan as he's skipping work to reserve a spot for the flower viewing party, and that's just way too soon for him. And there, a corpse of another fellow Toucan is hauled in by that killer hamster. He's quite determined to get a girlfriend there using Fakebook for that purpose, as well as using the rave to get one. And then comes the flower viewing party where there's a funeral for Toucan not realizing that it's not the same Toucan. This show just continues to do a solid job with the comedy as these animals sure have their heads in the wrong places, and at least this time the horrible animation quality doesn't get in the way like it did in the first two episodes.
