Storyline

Donald Duck arrives at Brownstone National Park. The park's ranger, J. Audubon Woodlore, asks the bears to participate with the tourists but...no stealing! Humphrey decides to pair with Donald particularly because of the roast ham he has. When Donald doesn't reward the bear with his food, Humphrey tries a variety of means to get the ham finally getting Donald's attention by lying down on the road pretending that Donald ran over him. After Donald pays up with food, he sees through the scheme and struggles with Humphrey. After the ranger makes Donald and Humphrey clean up the resulting mess, he too notices the ham and makes off with it but is scolded for it by Donald and Humphrey. Written by Anonymous

Sadly not that funny
1 September 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It's picnic season at the national park and the bears are warned to be on best behaviour in front of the visitors – most importantly there must be no theft of picnic baskets. When the park opens all the bears get themselves a party and begin to perform, however one bear is lumbered with begging for food from Donald Duck. When Donald is unwilling to share his food the bear goes to extreme lengths to get it!

Disney is not my favourite stable for cartoons of this period in time and Donald Duck is certainly not my favourite character of the time either. That this short is carried by him is a problem for me, but the fact that he almost plays second fiddle to an over animated bear is a bigger one. The bear isn't that funny save for a few moments, but the film relies on him rather than Donald for most of the time – Donald just does his `grumpy in a flap' act as usual.

Some of the jokes are funny and some of them have nice little bits of build-up to them but most are only so-so. I must admit that I'm not a fan of the character and thus was a little shut off to it from the start, so perhaps it is funnier than I'm giving credit to it for. However for me it was pretty ho-hum apart from some funny bits.
