ME: Yeah...that's the Minah Bird.  That's his entire name.  He was in
five or six cartoons that Chuck Jones directed.  They're not shown
often because the star of most was a little black kid named Inki who
was kind of a racial stereotype.  But they're very funny, odd
cartoons.

The song, by the way, is called "Fingal's Cave" and it's a great
classical piece by Mendelsohn.
