From Ryan :

Here it is. The first appearance of Ranger J. Audubon Woodlore. I find this to be one of my favorite Humphrey shorts. All the bears in Brownstone National Park are being fed and mingling with the tourists. Humphrey decides that he will mingle with Donald Duck, who doesn't seem to be too interested.

From Azure :

I love this one. In fact I think I love all the Humphrey bear shorts. I loved it when he was on Goof Troop too.

From Baruch Weiss :

This is my favorite Donald cartoon. I enjoyed the scene where Humphrey tries to sneak the ham out of Donald's picnic basket, but ends up with hot peppers instead.

From Ross :

This is one of my favorite Donald Duck cartoons from the 1950's. Grin & Bear It released in 1954, features the first appearance of the park ranger, J. Audubon Woodlore. The ranger was voiced by Bill Thompson, who was not only best known for voicing Droopy at MGM, but at Disney he provided the voices of the White Rabbit in "Alice In Wonderland," Mr. Smee in "Peter Pan," and Jock in "Lady & The Tramp." Another character is the very funny Humphrey Bear, who was introduced in the Academy Award Nominated cartoon of 1953, "Rugged Bear." Humphrey's hilarious mumbles were provided by the Disney studio sound effects man, Jimmy MacDonald. Clarence Nash, of course, provides Donald's quacky voice. Anyway, I like this cartoon. I love the scene in which Humphrey's face goes crazy and red after he eats the hot peppers. Donald says, "What's the matter with that guy?" Humphrey runs away, and he cools his mouth down by drinking the fast flowing water from the edge of a waterfall.
