I’m not going to go into the tragically sad reality that surrounds the history of the killer whale on which this prize is based. But, you can find it here…
Needless to say, it may be the reason that the animators chose to just animate a shadow of a whale in Slimu’s Auditorium. Or not… After all, the animators and writers aren’t exactly known for being PC.
Whatever the case…the 3rd Prize in Act II is in fact the Slimu Auditorium…which is really more of an homage to what was, rather than what is, as the flags wave, and a shadow swims…but there is no jumping.
Which is weird…because we already have a jumping killer whale.
For those of you who have the “Wet and Smokey” stunt show for Krusty Land (which was fashioned after the huge “Water World” show at Universal Hollywood), you see a killer whale jump when a cannon is fired.
No wonder Shamu went nuts on a trainer! But I digress…
Yes…I moved all of my aquatic related items over to a location far, far away from my zoo. I have loads of extra land…just not by the zoo. Go figure.
Can’t say that I am a fan of keeping whales in enclosures, any more than I am a fan of doing the same with large animals. But, in TSTO, we are only in the cartoon world of the past…and thankfully, places like SeaWorld have seen the error of their ways.
I know…I know…it’s a game…and these aren’t real. So, we’ll move on.
