Title Card

Africa is a 1930 Walter Lantz cartoon short featuring Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. It shouldn't be confused with Africa Before Dark which is an older Oswald cartoon that disappeared from public eye.

Plot summaryEdit

Oswald was riding through the Egyptian desert on his camel. The camel, though looking real on the exterior, is actually mechanical because of the two ball-shaped pistons inside which Oswald manipulates with his feet like bike pedals. One day, a lion was running toward them. To defend himself, Oswald brought out a rifle but it malfuntioned. As a final resort, Oswald fired the ball pistons from the camel like a cannon and aimed into the lion's mouth. Terrified by his lumpy back, the lion runs away in panic.

Nearby where he is, Oswald saw an oasis and a palace. Upon seeing the apes dance and play instruments, the curious rabbit decides to join the fun. As he entered the palace, Oswald was greeted by the queen. The queen asked him who he is, and Oswald introduced himself in a song as well as giving advice for a possibly better lifestyle. Pleased by his visit (even though,it looks like the queen is gaing on Oswald like he may accidentally insulted her or something because Oswald's walking away backward scared like the queen might going attack him), the queen asked Oswald if he would like to be her king. Oswald was at first uncertain, knowing he never met a queen, but immediately accepted. It turns out momentarily that the queen still has a king who shows up then throws Oswald out of the palace and into a pond full of crocodiles. Luckilly, Oswald escapes unscathed and runs off into the desert.
