J. Audubon Woodlore is a fussy but crafty and knowledgeable park ranger of Brownstone National Park.


J. Audubon Woodlore first appeared in the 1954 Donald Duck short, Grin and Bear It, and then again in Grand Canyonscope (also in 1954). A year later, he was in the short, Beezy Bear. J. Audubon Woodlore is usually seen performing duties related to running to Brownstone National Park. His foil is usually Humphrey the Bear. In one cartoon, he is seen regulating fishing season. During the short, Woodlore serves in keeping the lakes stocked, and making sure that everyone follows the laws. At the end, he opens hunting season, much to the chagrin of Humphrey. In another, he realizes that the park was become covered in litter. He starts to pick up the litter himself, but then realizes that since he is the boss, he can makes someone else do it. He then makes the bears perform a cleanup of the piles of litter that are in the park, bribing them with the prospect of chicken cacciatore.

In other cartoons, he interacts with Donald Duck. At one point, Donald runs a honey farm next door to the park. Ranger Woodlore is seen trying to keep the bears (mainly Humphrey) from raiding the hives. In another cartoon, he serves as a tour guide at the Grand Canyon. When Donald and Humphrey destroy the canyon, Woodlore forces the two to start digging in an attempt to repair the canyon.


Mickey Mouse Club

Along with Humphrey and many other characters, Woodlore was apart of Mickey's band in the opening animated theme. He was the lead drummer and marched in front of Humphrey and the other bears.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Woodlore could be seen in the large cartoon crowd near the end of the film.

Mickey Mouse Works

The ranger reprises his role with Humphrey in the animated series. Like the classic cartoons Woodlore struggles to keep Brownstone in check but is proven difficult due to Humphrey.

House of Mouse


Woodlore in House of Mouse

Woodlore reappears as a cameo guest in House of Mouse. In one specific episode "Humphrey in the House", Woodlore was hired by Minnie Mouse to clean the club as the Magic Brooms were on vacation. During the work, Woodlore would attempt to keep Humphrey at bay, who tries to steal as much food as possible. Woodlore also appears in Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mouse. He is also mentioned by Ludwig Von Drake in "The Ludwig Von Drake Song", as he lists the various Disney guests at the club.

Disney Parks

J. Audubon Woodlore recently made his Disney Parks debut in Disneyland. In one of the shows, he teaches the guests about keeping the forest clean. Along with Humphrey, Woodlore is a mascot for Walt Disney World's Disney's Wilderness Lodge Hotel. The ranger appears in the hotel's merchandise as well.

If you look carefully during the Country Bear Vacation Hoedown on the screen during Wendell's song, J. Audubon Woodlore is on one of the pictures pointing at the "Don't Feed the Bears" sign.
