At only 67 minutes of running time, this Disney animal adventure story by James Algar is still slow-paced. The star of the tale is Lobo (which means "wolf" in Spanish), a legendary wolf who lived in the region of New Mexico at the turn of the 20th century. The story begins with Lobo as a young pup, just finding out about life in the wild. One of the unusual moves he makes is to befriend a baby antelope, normally a brief snack for a wolf. Even though Lobo is different, he soon learns that he has to defend himself against all sorts of four-legged creatures. It also does not take long for him to learn that the two-legged creatures with guns and traps are the most dangerous of all.
