Yo Yo Flamingo is the star of the animated short featured in Fantasia 2000. Yo Yo is a pink American Flamingo who is separated from the other Flamingos due to his love of Yo-Yos.
He was voiced by Eli Marienthal (who also played Hogarth Hughes in the 1999 animated film The Iron Giant by Warner Bros.)
Unlike the rest of the flamingos, Yo-Yo is free spirited and just wants to have fun.
Role in the film
The short started with the flamingos waking up and starting the swimming. Yo Yo was left behind playing with his Yo-Yo. The other Flamingos find him and stop his playing and makes him practice along side them. Yo Yo (upset) joins in the practice. Although he was practicing with them he managed to play with his Yo-Yo too. The snooty flamingos catch him and a chase began. Yo Yo managed to get them stuck in a log. While they were stuck Yo Yo plays with his toy. The other flamingos rise from the water and drown Yo Yo. While he's under water, they throw his Yo-Yo into a tree. Yo Yo then ties the other flamingos up with Yo-Yo strings. Yo Yo rises from the water and it is revealed he has hundreds of Yo-Yos. Yo Yo prevails and the short ends.
