Barney Bear’s Victory Garden

July 4, 2008 at 3:13 pm 3 comments

Happy 4th of July!

Here’s a 1942 MGM cartoon directed by Rudolf Ising. Barney Bear was a cartoon star from 1939 to 1954 and climbed out of retirement to make a comeback in 1980 as part of the “Tom and Jerry Comedy Show.” In this short, Barney plants a garden, but encounters resistance from the underground. Check out the seed packets starting around minute 3:00; Barney’s hoping for a nice crop of tires.
