There was a popular Jungle themed christian children's musical, in the early 90's.

It centered on a young lion cub worried about growing up and becoming King (not Lion King).

It had several fun characters in it, including one that liked to play tennis on Tuesdays (English accent).

Does anyone know the name of this musical, and maybe who wrote it or performed it so I can find it?

Here's the lowdown, background info:

Since 1990, Jeff Parker, Nathan Carlson, Phil Lollar and David Buller have worked together to entertain and enrich children and their parents all over the world. As Woolly Mammoth Entertainment, they created and developed the hit radio series Jungle Jam and Friends the Radio Show!, which also featured the RazzleFlabbenz and Sing Along with Bert the Moose! In 1999, Wayne Zeitner from Everland Entertainment joined the team. They changed the name of their company to Fancy Monkey Studios, and are launching brand new programs, still designed to make kids and their parents laugh through stories that show the goodness of God and the relevance of the Bible.
