Bongo The Wonder Bear

A little illustration of Bongo (the Wonder Bear!) from Walt Disney's "Fun And Fancy Free" (1947). Bongo is, unfortunately, a little known character, but the half-hour short he stars in is one of my personal favorites. It is a wonderful yarn about this captive circus bear who escapes into the wild to learn to be true to his instincts, all while he battles for his love, Lulubelle, a wild bear cub he meets by chance in the forest.

 

If you've never seen this short, check it out over here.
