The best of the Barney Bear cartoons-it's hilarious!

The Barney Bear cartoons were more silly than funny for the most part. The most interesting thing about them is the fact that the character was purportedly inspired by actor Wallace Beery, a big star in the 1930s and early 1940s. You can see similarities between the two. This is the best of the series and is wonderfully done. It was deservedly nominated for a Oscar for Animated Short. Poor Barney goes through a basic training concocted by de Sade! Probably not that far from real basic training at that! Highly recommended.
