Storyline

It's a peaceful day in a national forest...until hunting season begins at which point all the bears hide out in a cave but one bear, Humphrey, doesn't make it. He hides out in a cabin and, seeing hunter Donald Duck approaching, hides the bearskin rug in a trunk and takes its place. Masquerading as the rug tends to be an unpleasant experience for Humphrey as Donald opens nuts and bottles in his mouth and washes him in the washer/dryer among other things. Finally, when hunting season ends and Donald leaves, Humphrey is relieved but makes a startling discovery... Written by Matt Yorston <georgey@atcon.com>

Perhaps the best of the Humphrey-Donald cartoons
1 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I do enjoy the Humphrey Bear-Donald Duck cartoons. There aren't many of them, but while they are occasionally routine and predictable they are cute and entertaining with solid technical aspects. I liked Rugged Bear best of all, as the story was always crisp and fun, as well as being the least predictable of their collaborations together. Rugged Bear is very funny and imaginative constantly, yet you do feel sympathy for Humphrey. The animation is colourful and vibrant with the characters and backgrounds looking fluid, while the music is full of energy and the main reason why the cartoon has so much life to it. Donald is suitably temperamental, but the star was Humphrey, who still manages to be endearing although the worst of the painful-looking action involves him. Overall, wonderful and highly recommended. 10/10 Bethany Cox
