Dumb Bell of the Yukon is a Donald Duck short released 30 August 1946.


Donald Duck reads a post card from Daisy telling him she wants some fur coats. So, Donald goes off to hunt bears. He wanders into a bear cave and sees a mama bear and a baby bear. He pictures the baby bear being a fur coat. He uses "essence of honey" to capture the baby bear. The mama bear mistakes Donald for the baby bear and starts licking and hugging him. Donald takes the baby bear home and puts it in a lot of stances. Donald then thinks of the ways he could kill the bear. Donald tries to hang the bear with no success.

The mama bear realizes that her baby is missing and follows Donald's footprints to his house. Donald disguises himself as the baby bear. The mama bear accidentally squeezes Donald too tightly and his costume rips off. He puts it back on and tricks the bear, while the baby bear is trying to ruin Donald's plans. The baby bear kicks Donald so hard that his costume comes off and he spills honey on himself. The mama bear and the cub start licking the honey off his head.
