Carl Barks animations

Growing up in a country where Donald Duck is weekly reading for (just about) all kids, I have a special fondness for the master Duck Man Carl Barks. (Some of  his shorter stories can be found here, although his longer ones are more interesting.)

I am reading Carl Barks and the Disney Comic Book: Unmasking the Myth of Modernity and found a list of animations he had a hand in early in his Disney career, mostly in creating the story and storyboard. Not surprisingly, these turns out to be among my favorites from childhood.

There is a lot to say about these cartoons – from sociological,  psychological, artistic (etc) viewpoints – but I am more inclined to enjoy them in simplicity right now.
