A snowy scene; Daisy would like a fur coat, so Donald filches a baby bear from its sleeping mother. But the mother awakens and tracks Donald (and her baby) down. Donald uses his own fur coat to disguise himself as a bear cub. The real cub returns, and Donald looks like he might be in trouble, but a jar of honey turns him into the bear's best friend instead.

Donald and the Cub
25 May 2016 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Dumb Bell of the Yukon (1946)

*** (out of 4)

I'm sure you can but Donald is the dumb bell the title refers to. Basically he decides to steal a bear cub from its mother but his plans for it don't go as he expected.

If you're a fan of Disney shorts then you'll certainly find this one entertaining as it contains some pretty good laughs as well as some nice action throughout. It "product of its time" humor is also on full display and especially when you consider one of the jokes deals with how to kill the cub and we get a hanging sequence. This sequence is actually quite funny as Donald takes a beating for his effort. Another highlight happens towards the end when mommy bear shows up and Donald must pretend that he's the cub.
