Canceled Too Soon #176 | Father of the Pride (2004-2005)


Everyone knows Siegfried and Roy were the biggest stage show in Las Vegas, combining magic tricks and white lions and tigers!

Was FATHER OF THE PRIDE... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold guide you through the history of this ambitious CG-animated primetime series and reveal whether all that magic made the transition to the small screen!
