Another clever Humphrey cartoon.
14 August 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

In the 1950s, Disney made a half dozen Humphrey the Bear cartoons. They are all pretty fun and have held up well over the years, though the series never exactly caught on and Humphrey is all but forgotten today. Like other Humphrey cartoons, it stars our beloved bear and the forest ranger. BUT it is nothing like Yogi Bear--it's good!

In this cute installment, Humphrey is excited. After all, it's fishing season and the park's waters are being stocked with fish. However, despite his best efforts, again and again, the pesky ranger interrupts him and keeps him from enjoying a nice fish dinner.

Overall, this short works for one big reason--it's fun. Humphrey is a likable character but he is also given excellent writing and a nice little sadistic edge. While the animation is only so-so, the writing and entertainment value are excellent.
