Bongo is an animated short of the segment of Fun and Fancy Free narrated by Dinah Shore. The short was released on its own as a featurette in December 15, 1970.
Bongo is a circus bear who dreams of living in the wild. He gets his wish ... but then learns that he has to prove himself.

- When Fun and Fancy Free had further releases, this featurette version faded from existence, apparently because of the distributors of the Disney Studio felt that the featurette version of Mickey and the Beanstalk would be the appropriate segment to market for children, while Bongo would be considered an interest for the older crowed.
- However, the featurette version of this segment can be found on the "Mini Classics" collection VHS from 1989 and 1993, which are the only traces of its existence.
- In the 1948 Golden Storybook version of this segment, the mature concepts are reduced to make it appropriate for the younger readers, as instead of Bongo and Lulubelle are in love, they are explicitly implied as friends.
