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.
