Comments

From Dan : Not only my favorite Disney cartoon, but my favorite cartoon of all time, Frank Duck Brings 'Em Back Alive is a superbly made cartoon that has inexplicably been shown on television only a few times in comparison to others. What makes it so great is not only its beautiful depiction of a dark jungle, but it is very thrilling. As (literally) goofy as the wild man is, the notion of a lone explorer in the jungle tracking down the "savage" is exciting. Also it is very fast moving and humorous, with Donald and Goofy working well together as usual. Brilliant cartoon, should be showed far more often than it has been.
From Thad Komorowski : Believe me, this is NOT the same premise I had in mind when I heard of the cartoon's title. Goofy is the appropriate wildman, and Donald is the great, white hunter (pun intended). A good cartoon, it's really a shame that this one never aired too much.
From Baruch Weiss : This short was pretty funny. I liked the scene where Goofy eats Donald's contract.
