Storyline

Barney's an aviation mechanic for the Army, though his technique is more like a bartender. His plane is a cute little prop that's not only much smaller than the jets but much more anthropomorphic. Once they get aloft, the plane goes after a pelican out of sheer playfulness, but it turns into an all-out war. The pelican finally demolishes the plane. The plane and Barney plummet to the ground, where they land in the seats of a much larger plane. Barney is clearly unfamiliar with the controls, and takes them on a harrowing trip high into the atmosphere, where they freeze solid until they crash into "Ceiling Zero"; once again, they are demolished and plummet to Earth. In the hospital, Barney and his plane have adjoining beds. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Rudolf Ising's The Flying Bear was a pretty amusing Barney Bear cartoon
23 November 2009 | by See all my reviews

Just watched this Rudolf Ising cartoon for M-G-M on the Daily Motion site as linked from the Cartoons, Model Sheets, and Stuff site. It stars Barney Bear as a pilot for a small plane that literally has a personality of its own. This plane does things Barney does not want him to do like get in fights with a pelican or the much bigger planes that fly above them. Not hilarious but there are some amusing touches throughout concerning the small plane and the bear's attempts to control him. Compared to fellow studio directors Tex Avery and Hanna-Barbera, Ising doesn't seem to aim for laughs but chuckles. That's okay as this was still a pretty entertaining cartoon. So on that note, The Flying Bear is worth a look.
