WOOOOOOP WOOOOOOP Fullscreen! How did I do that? lol
YAY my first ever black and white video! *dances*
Ahem i was going to upload this in colour but then it looked more effective like this.
I know loads of people have used this song with meerkats but i thought it went well with the Starsky and when i watched this video back, I almost cried :'')
Anyway the Starsky showed how hard it is to start a group and I hope they are together now R.I.P The Starsky.
The Starsky Mob
The Starsky was featured on Meerkat Manor Season Three. They were the new small group formed by Whiskers females and Lazuli males, though one was really a Young Ones male.The Starsky was discovered by Mitch while he was searching for the rest of the Whiskers. "Carlos" (played by JD) was the dominant male of the Starsky, but the dominant female was still unknown. He and Shady chased Mitch away when he got too close. Mozart could have been the dominant female since she was the oldest, but Kinkaju was also aiming for dominance. Mozart was the first to give birth. None of the females stayed behind to babysit so Mozart left her pups alone. Kinkajou later returned and killed the pups. With this act she secured her place as dominant female. Kinkaju led the group along with Carlos after she killed Mozart's pups. Carlos had received a scar as a gift from "Hannibal" (played by Jim Bob) although his scar was actually a major TB infection. It soon became too painful for Carlos to forage. He died soon after and the Kalahari lost its greatest lover. The Kalahari's romantic hero was gone. Over a span of several months, the Starsky's numbers diminished, leaving only Mozart, Kinkajou, and "Whoopi" (played by De La Soul) as its surviving members. While searching for mates, the three sisters ran into a male, his siblings, his extended family, his mother, and Hannibal. The "Commandos" (played by the Vivian) gave chase to the three Starsky girls. The three sisters were split apart during the chase. Mozart managed to return to the burrow, and later so did Kinkaju. Their sister Whoopi did not return. The two girls tried to work together to survive, but did not succeed. Kinkaju died of starvation, leaving Mozart as the sole survivor. Mozart then spent about three months on her own. She attempted to rejoin the Whiskers but the new dominant female, Rocket Dog, chased her away. She was later joined by "Wilson" (played by Drew), a Commandos male whom was kicked out of the Whiskers by Zaphod. Wilson discovered Mozart that same day and mated with her only hours after mating with Rocket Dog. A storm arrived during the night, and Wilson stayed with Mozart. A brush was caught on fire by a bolt of lightning. Mozart and Wilson survived the night. It seems the Starsky had another chance, but Wilson started making his way back for the Commandos. Mozart, not willing to be left alone, followed Wilson. Mozart has a good chance of joining the Commandos, now smelling of Wilson. But when they arrived, Hannibal sounded the alarm for battle. But they weren't getting ready to fight Mozart and Wilson; a rival group was approaching on Commando territory. Wilson left Mozart to go fight side by side with his father. Mozart ran off being the only member of the Starsky. The next morning, Wilson wasted no time in looking for Mozart. He finally found Mozart's burrow, but he discovered Mozart had been killed by a passing jackal. Wilson left Mozart's side and headed back to his family. With that, the Starsky Mob had met its end.
The Starsky was showed on Meerkat Manor so that people could see how hard it is to form a new group. Some make it and others don't. Also, viewers would have wanted to known what happen to Mozart and Carlos if they were no longer mentioned in the show. The deaths of Mozart and Carlos were sad and tragic but these are real animals and Animal Planet wanted people to known that.
