J. Audubon Woodlore is a fussy, but crafty and knowledgeable park ranger of Brownstone National Park. He most prominently serves as a foil to the mischievous Humphrey the Bear.

Background

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 a runaway mountain lion destroy the canyon, Woodlore forces the two to start digging in an attempt to repair the canyon.

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.

Other appearances
