From S. C. MacPeter :

Early McKimson was full of these weird ideas trying to do things like Clampett but without the exaggeration, but he could get a bit more serious with it. Hobo Bobo is a fun early effort by Mckimson and Warren Foster that tells a narrative quite nice. Also the closet we'll get to seeing the Mynah Bird in HD. Highly recommend
