This is just hideous, obviously draw by some really horrible artist for the Albany Cinema back in 1953. I also find it funny that they are showing Donald Duck, Goofy, Heckle & Jeckle, Popeye and Bugs Bunny cartoons yet of those mentioned only Donald is pictured. The cartoon characters pictured seem to be Barney Bear, Droopy, Donald Duck, some elves (or are they dwarves?), pluto and one of Donald’s nephews.

Here’s a fun poster for Barney Bear‘s Oscar Nominated short The Rookie Bear. Reproductions of these and other posters can be easily found on Ebay and around the internet. They are relatively cheap and look pretty good.
It’s a shame that Barney Bear doesn’t have a DVD set devoted to his adventures. Some of his cartoons have been released as extras on some DVD releases, but many of these are now out of print and very hard to find. Nowdays the only choices that an animation devotee has are to either buy a DVD of unrestored cartoons from Jerry Beck‘s cartoon research garage sale or to hope to find 16mm films of the cartoons on Ebay. If you really want to see the cartoons you could just sit on your ass and wait for someone to upload the cartoon to Youtube.

Here’s a Barney Bear cartoon from 1953. It was directed by Dick Lundy.
This cartoon reminds me a little bit of the 1930s Disney cartoon Donald’s Cousin Gus.

Here’s a cel that’s up for sale at the Van Eaton gallery of Barney Bear, a much overlooked character from the 1940s MGM cartoons.
The cel is from the wartime cartoon The Flying Bear. Even though Barney does not get the kudos of the more famous MGM characters Tom & Jerry or Droopy but I still like his cartoons. Barney made a few war themed cartoons such as The Flying Bear, The Rookie Bear and Bear Raid Warden. They have not bee officially released on DVD but can be found as extras on some classic MGM movies released by Warner Bros.
