Comments

From Ryan : Until the release of the Oswald DVD set, I had never seen this short. One gag I enjoy is when Oswald takes away the bears' furs and makes a fur coat out of them. Another interesting thing to note is that the animation of the waterfall was reused in the early Merrie Melodie cartoon "Hittin' the Trail to Hallelujah Land."
From John Boles : It is obvious that this cartoon was directed and drawn by Hugh Harman and Rudolph Ising (no doubt with the help of Friz Freleng). The style, jokes and animation is unmistakably theirs. It almost looks like one of their early Merry Melodie or Looney Tunes cartoon except for the missing soundtrack. I very much doubt Walt Disney had anything to do with this cartoon. A perfect example are the two "Cubby the Bear" cartoons Harman and Ising produced for RKO Radio Pictures. They are completely unlike the rest of the series as Harman and Ising had avery distinctive style and humor. A number of the Winkler Oswald cartoons bear their stamp as well.
