Put it in the bag- Bump bump

Posted on

Thanks to a comment today from my roommate, “If you see Marvin the Martian, tell him I said hi!” I am inspired to use my spaciness to the full potential.

So I think- “What if I did see Marvin the Martian?” I log onto youtube and begin to search for Marvin the Martian cartoons.

Then I think about old cartoons I loved and this one has to be my absolute favorite. No, it does not feature Marvin the Martian.  Until this morning I thought it was produced by Warner Brothers but it’s actually a Disney short entitled “Put it in the bag.” Perhaps the reason I didn’t know it was by Disney is because it is drawn in a very MGM or Warner Brothers style or perhaps it is because it is an uncharacteristically old cartoon by Disney that features none of their major players (Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy). Aired on July 27, 1956, this cartoon could be my parents’ or even grandparents’ favorite cartoon as well.  This is a timeless cartoon that I wish more people were aware of.

I also never realized that this cartoon included a cameo by Smokey the Bear and that the song actually had lyrics, which I’ve included below the cartoon. Enjoy!

First you stick a rag, put in the bag, bump bump
Then you bend your back, put it in the sack, bump bump
That’s the way it’s done, it’s a lot of fun, bump bump
Cuttin’ capers puttin’ papers in the bag

Poor Humphrey!

  1. Of course, you realize, the park ranger is voiced by the same man who played the White Rabbit in Alice in Wonderland.

  2. Yes, but at age 5 I did not make that connection. Besides- the Park Ranger not only has a song but a swing in his hips that the rabbit couldn’t handle. Maybe it’s because the rabbit was white…. ooh, did I say that out loud? 😉

  3. I googled: put it in the bag park ranger bears cartoon and your site is the first one and I click the link and the first thing I read is put it in the bag -bump bump. I LOVED this cartoon as a kid. Thank you man ^^

  4. Awww, thank you Gala! (It’s actually ‘Thank you WOman” but I am glad I could help you out.)

  5. Wow, thanks for putting this up. My favorite cartoon of all time, as well as my mothers. Very nice to see it again

  6. THANK YOU for posting this!! I rented this cartoon one time, when my (now) 18 year old was a baby. He LOVED it- we have sung this song ever since, but never knew which cartoon this song was actually from. You have pieced together a favored family memory!! THANKS!!
