Animaland: The Cuckoo
The Cuckoo was the third of the Animaland shorts to be released, although Peter Hale informs me that it was actually in development before the first two, The Lion and The House Cat.
For the most part this short does away with the nature mockumentary style used by most early Animalands and goes for a character-based odd-couple comedy instead. It's one of the stronger shorts in the series, and the villainous weasel is perhaps the single best Animaland character.
