Caveman Inki (1950)

Caveman Inki is a 1950 Looney Tunes cartoon directed by Chuck Jones.


Inki is going hunting for food, he is joined along with his pet dinosaur. While the two are walking, a volcano splits and reveals a Minah Bird that has a peculiar hopping walk. Inki chases after the bird, but ends up caught between a Saber-Tooth Lion that wants Inki for the bone in his top knot.

The lion chases Inki and vice versa. While constantly running into a caveman that is trying to cook a stew (Of course it's a running gag in the story). The dinosaur is also out to get the Minah Bird, but ends up getting caught by the bird.

The caveman who is cooking the stew finally catches Inki and the Lion because they keep ruining his stew. At the end however he discovers that the bird has eaten all of his stew.


  • It is the only Inki cartoon reissued after 1956 in the 1957-1958 season (blue Color Rings) with production number 1509, and therefore survives with its original credits in the Blue Ribbon titles.[citation needed|date=]

  • Because this cartoon portrays stereotypes of Indian and black cultures, it is no longer included in USA television packages, along with the other 4 Inki shorts. This is the only Inki cartoon to not be released on any official home video set.
