Storyline

As a narrator describes the scene, we watch the whole Katzenjammer clan camping in the park of the title, a composite of several national parks in the western USA. There are several spot gags, including Mama taking a picture of a bear and ending up being photographed by several bears. Mama has a run-in with the law for picking a flower; The Captain has his own for feeding a bear, which turns out to be a ranger/cop in disguise. Also featured are the many geysers, where the boys fetch water for the radiator; it erupts, both there and in The Captain's belly after he drinks some. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

One of the more successful Captain and the Kids shorts
6 December 2003 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

One of the few Captain cartoons done in color, this was a parody of the travelogue shorts popular at the time. The narration is a large part of the success of this short. Funny, pointed and often sarcastic and/or irreverent, the narration is the funniest aspect of this particular cartoon, part of a series MGM did based on the comic strip featuring Der Captain and the Kids. The Captain is his typical bumbling, ill-mannered self, of course. Well worth watching. Recommended.
