MGM Lion tribute. Ate the trainer and 2 assistants after the day the commercial was published.

Remember when this played on when you were watching Tom and Jerry when you were a little kid. Who could forget?

Here is an interesting fact.

The lion used in the original MGM movie logo killed its trainer and two assistants the day after the logo was filmed.

The lion was named Slats. It growls rather than roar in the film shooting. Slats was used on all black and white films from 1924 to 1928.

For years, the lion would tour with MGM promoters to signify the studio’s launch.

During this time, he survived 2 train wrecks, a flood in Mississippi, an earthquake in California, a fire, and a plane crash.

Slats died in 1936 at age 23 and was buried on Phifer’s farm in New Jersey.

Now the lion and trainer can die in peace.

Share this to honor the lion as well as the trainer now.

  2. Everything about this article is wrong. 1. that picture is of Leo the lion. 2. The original lion, Slats, doesn’t growl…he just looks around because it was during the silent film era. 3. Jackie the lion aka Lucky was the one who survived the fire, plane crash, etc. and 4. None of these lions killed their trainers.
