The star of this one is Mortimer Snerd-like Beaky Buzzard, incongruously identified as "Killer". Dispatched by Mama Buzzard to fetch a few animals for dinner, Beaky's brothers perform magnificently, dragging home everything from a cow (with a milking farmer still attached!), to a flying elephant who isn't Dumbo. Alas, the best Beaky can do is summed up by his famous signature tune: "I'm bringin' home a bay-bee bumblebee...won't my mother be so proud of me..." When the bumblebee escapes, Beaky tries his luck with a tiny lizard--who instantly morphs into a ferocious dragon.
