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

Quite amusing....
15 March 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Even if the story is rather routine, I quite liked Grin and Bear It. The animation has a lot of beautiful colours to it with well drawn characters(Donald especially) and fluid backgrounds, and the music is very energetic. Like a lot of the Disney cartoons, the humour is sight-gag-driven and a lot of it is amusing if nothing new strictly speaking, particularly the ending and Donald's reaction to the "Don't molest(not what you think it means) the bears" sign. Grin and Bear It is notable for the debut of the Ranger, voiced with exuberance by Bill Thompson, but it is Donald and Humphrey the bear that are the main focus and both are great fun, with their contrasting personalities shining. Overall, unexceptional but still quite amusing. 8/10 Bethany Cox
