I love the Humphrey the Bear shorts!

I just love this series of shorts! I have no idea why, but I think they're marvelous. Humphrey usually winds up the loser in whatever is going on and the expressions on his face are hilarious. The animation is quite good for 1950s animation and Humphrey and Ranger Woodlore are well developed as characters. Too bad these aren't in print. Well worth looking for. They run these on The Ink and Paint Club. Most recommended.
