A group of Native American children dances, in preparation for hunting. These hunters don't seem to be much of a threat to anyone but themselves, though. Two of them go after a squirrel, to no avail. Another tries to convince a donkey to let him ride, also with no luck. Finally, one of the boys, whose brother is strapped to his back, attracts the unwanted attention of a bear with his brother's candy; after everyone ends up hanging off a cliff, the bear gets the candy and the boys all head for home.

Fondly remembered
10 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I vaguely remember finding this cartoon fun as a kid. The only things I remember are a bear chasing after the kids to get a peppermint candy one of them was eating. I recall at one point the kids all hanging off a cliff, and one of them getting his pants pulled off and spending the rest of the cartoon bare-assed.

Oddly, I don't seem to remember it having Chuck Jones's signature style. It seemed more restrained and traditional than his later Bugs Bunny and Tom & Jerry cartoons, which were more frenetic, even bizarre and surreal.

I haven't seen it in at least twenty years. I don't know if I am remembering it correctly or not, but I seem to recall enjoying it.
