I don't see anything 'funny' about this. I see a majestic wild animal that has been taken from its natural environment and used as a thing to make money and to be laughed at.

Billie Richards and Trader Horne took over Jungleland in the mid 1950′s. The trainers and other performers stayed on so there was not much of a change.

They came up with the idea that maybe they should put together a movie about wild animals.
