After being sent a link to a list of "angry looking birds" earlier this week, I have become obsessed by the African Shoebill. Some may call it ugly, but I think it's a jaw-droppingly majestic beast with seriously prehistoric stylings. Check him out:-









Also, some amazing footage here:-

It totally looks like some cartoon that I can vaguely remember. Maybe loony toon? A random character not a regular. Trying to remember....

I remembered! It is loony toons! The cartoon was called Porky in Wackyland and had a dodo bird in it. Here's the bird!



ETA: Ohhhh!! That's good too, Lizz.

Older than you.

ETA: They still run the classic loony toons even now. Just because they make new cartoons doesn't mean they don't play the old ones.

Actually I'd be suprised if you were that much older, plus you look good, damn you.
