Initial Character Research - Lion Tamer

As a starting point for my 'character' portion I checked out some relevant material involving lion-tamer characters.

One notable example is Hanna Barbara's Lion Tamer Huck (7 minutes)

Lion Tamer Tools of the Trade:
  • A whip
  • A pistol
  • A chair
  • A fool-hardy fearless individual
  • a ferocious lion

Another notable example is 'Amos and Andy in The Lion Tamer' (9 minutes)

Lion tamers are drawn from circus themed characters and generally can incorporate a lot of comedy as well as excitement through their performance. It's perceived as generally a dangerous occupation due to the fact the performer "plays" around with a powerful animal who could rip them to shreds.
