One more thing about Father of the Pride
last night that bothered me: This.
This appears to be a portrait of Sarmoti standing in front of the door...hanging on the wall, next to where Sarmoti is in fact standing in front of the door. That's...odd. That's not funny enough on the face of it to be consciously intended as humourous, and not bizarre enough to be weird for weird's sake in an Escheresque infinite recursion. It simply doesn't work as a background. The portrait is a Chekhov's gun, here; the prop calls attention to itself, but there's never any punchline delivered with it. Sloppy, in-jokey and inexplicably strange is no way for an animated series to go through life.
