Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This semi-documentary Disney feature stars a "wacky" Canadian lynx (that's what the press release says) and an Irish setter. The two four-legged protagonists manage to get themselves lost in the snowy Washington mountains. Along the way, the Disney people find time to include actual scenes from the annual Cle Elum Sled Derby. The human cast, comprised mainly of non-professionals, includes Ron Brown, Dean Melang, James L. Wilson and Jack Pointing. Narrated by country-western entertainer Mayf Nutter, Lefty, the Ding-A-Ling Lynx was first telecast as a two-part installment of The Wonderful World of Disney on November 28 and December 5, 1971.
