Welcome to The Lion Sleeps Tonight. It took me awhile to produce but I finally got it onto Newgrounds. So enjoy.

This is my first submission to Newgrounds so give me a break if the animation seems simple. Any questions or comments whould be greatly appreciated so e-mail me at Now sit back, shut up and watch all ready.

I am sorry, but I did not care for this. It was basically just this same animation over and over. I did like how you used the song. It's a good song. It's just that the animation is pretty shoddy. There's no shading or anything.

The lion doesn't even appear much. Then again, he's supposed to be sleeping. The movement was too repetitive. I am sure that you can do much better. It just was not memorable.

I like!

+The art is good
+the info is great
+the ideas were fun and well executed
+it had reasonable lip sync, which is one of the key measures of quality.

Although I cant say this is my favourite version, I gave you 10/10 sound for digging up the original LST. It so happens that The Lion Sleeps Tonight is one of the official theme tunes of the Dragons & Spirits, so I will show it to my colleagues when I see them. I know of quite afew versions, but this one is new to me, as was some of the info about Wimaway- did you know the south africans are suing Disney for its use of LST in Lion King!
If you feel like improving this sometime- PM me and I will go through some details with you.
Best Wishes,
IceDragon64 of the Dragons & Spirits

A decent flash for a great song

It´s a decent flash, but it could be better. Don´t get me wrong, I like it, but if you could improve the graphics and the movement, It would be great!

The Best: The song. It brought memories of my childhood. Sniff, sniff :P
To improve: The movements and give texture to the toons.

waste of time

this was just the biggest waste of my time i ever did .....
expect i hate this song more then anything else .... i didnt like the animation, animals , and the lip synchronisation ....

i see that you put a lot of effort in this flash .... but please use it next time for something entertaining ......
