This Pete Smith special follows a couple of lion cubs who escape from a zoo and then wreak havoc in one home's nursery full of toys and its kitchen, before they entertain a monkey, that's "riding" a goat, by toying with a python. As with all of this producer's short films, it's all in fun and Smith's narration includes (indeed, provides) a lot of the humor, as he voices the characters' thoughts (e.g. giving the animals personalities): a Jack-in-the-box in the nursery pops up & down, hiding when the cubs get too close; when the cubs tear open a feather pillow, a Christmas song briefly plays; the cubs discover, and then eat a pie on the kitchen counter-top before a can of flour spills, covering them both "white"; the monkey "speaks" to the cubs before one of them "tangles" with the python, who's "upset" when the cub tears at its hide, etc.. Entertaining as usual, especially for young animal lovers!
