Great cartoon!

Now how did we learn to fly?
I don't know whether there is an english analogon. Here we say: I'm just out (= on the fly?) to fetch some cigarettes! (meaning: and won't be seen ever after.)

We say "must fly!" when we need to leave in a hurry, as a stronger form of "must run!" when late for something.

It is really a great cartoon!

Now how did we learn to fly?

I think that the cartoon does not reveal the whole thing... Right after this scene, the second fish follows and there is no other way for the first to escape than flying:eek:
