Synopsis by Hal Erickson
At the invitation of Walt Disney himself, erudite cartoon genius Professor Ludwig Von Drake takes over the hosting chores in this episode. Using clips from earlier Disney animated shorts for illustration purposes, Prof. Von Drake explains mankind's need to hunt, all the while conducting his own "hunt" for his missing glasses. Seen herein for the first time is Von Drake's loyal assistant and general factotum, Herman the Bootle Beetle. Although "The Hunting Instinct" was never rebroadcast on Walt Disney's Wondeful World of Color, the episode was later released theatrically overseas, and extensively excerpted in the 1982 Disney's Wonderful World installment "Man's Hunting Instinct."
