Barney Bear is out in the woods picking berries when he comes across a skunk. Fearful of the skunk's scent, he tries to avoid it but when he arrives back home, the skunk enters his home shortly after he does. When Barney discovers the skunk, he demands it leave his house. When the skunk refuses, Barney gives chase during the course of which he falls into a well and the skunk rescues him. Even after the rescue, Barney is still angry and is about to clobber the pest with a shovel but just can't bring himself to do it. So instead he dons a gas mask and invites the skunk back into his house. Written by Matt Yorston <georgey@atcon.com>

Well, he's actually a pretty nice little skunk!
7 December 2013 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

In this installment of the Barney Bear films, Barney is out collecting berries when he meets up with a skunk. Unfortunately, the skunk REALLY likes berries and follows Barney everywhere--across a log overlooking a HUGE drop and even to Barney's home! However, unlike most cartoons like this, the skunk isn't mean nor does he torture Barney. Instead, Barney just can't stand the smell of him and gets himself in trouble trying to avoid him. Overall, it's rather cute and sweet. Not among the very best Barney Bear cartoons but a worthy addition--with a gentle sense of humor and typically lovely animation--which is true of all the MGM cartoons of this era. Worth seeing.
