Editorial Reviews

Moki (John Yesno), a Cree Indian, is made foreman of a sprawling cattle ranch owned by his former army commander. But he carries with him through life the lore of his own people. When he rescues a bear cub, Wahb, he feels a mystical connection between himself and the magnificent creature. Later, Wahb, now a 1,300-pound bear, returns from the wild to wreak havoc on the cattle ranch, and Moki must face this fearsome grizzly. This spectacular film depicts a territorial battle over a country of breathtaking beauty.

"The King of the Grizzlies" combines a wonderful animal tale with spectacular outdoor scenery to make for a wonderful movie that will be enjoyed by the entire family. In this movie, viewers learn a lot about bears live in the wilderness and the role of man vs. animal in the untamed West of 1899. Viewers also learn a little about Native Americans and their culture, especially their bond with nature and wildlife, as seen through the devotion of Moki (the Indian boy who helps the Colonel with his catttle drive) and Wahb (the bear who is the main star of the movie). Animals and outdoor scenery dominate much of this film. Constantly changing events in Wahb's life and travels hold the viewer's attention, along with the beautiful forested mountains and rushing blue waters. A great film for the entire family. Fast paced, lots of natural action and drama. A must see.

Taking place at the tail end of the Old West era, King of the Grizzlies documents the story of Moh-Sum-See Wahb, a grizzly bear with an odd track-mark. He lives an idyllic life with his mother and his twin sister. He hunts, plays, meets a marmot and a badger, and even does some snow sledding on a vessel made of bark. As the events unfold, a narrator (Winston Hibler) tells us what we're seeing and what Wahb is presumably thinking and feeling. Eventually man comes into the picture, bringing with him a whole lot of trouble. The movie is slowly-paced and might bore the tykes, but the scenery and wildlife is breathtaking. Based upon The Biography of a Grizzly by Ernest Thompson Seton.

In the tradition of walt disneys true life adventures. King of the grizzlies joins the library of disney style animal adventures. Like "Nikki wild dog", "Lobo", and various others, it is an animal adventure story with loads of true life adventure polish and overtones to it; complete with narration by Winston Hibler, a veteran of almost all disneys true life adventures. The scenery is breathtaking. For those who grew up with the sunday night disney show in the 60's and 70's it will bring back a lot of fond memories. They really dont make them like this any more; devoid of the cynicism which tarnishes modern family films, though a little dated in some respects, its a piece of disney nostalgia that children should see. If only Disney would release Perri, the most hidden animal adventure of all.

When I was in the EAD-USAF and stationed in Idaho in TAC/USAF at Mt. Home AFB, reports of Grizzly Bear sightings and attacks were well known.
As a boy, I grew up with Disney movies and the outdoors in the Boy Scouts of America. As a family movie in the Disney tradition, all of those memories were revitalized. Winston Hibler was a narrator of several Disney Nature movies and TV programs. The central feature of this DVD movie is the Bear Moh-Sum-See-Wahb as the star actor growing up from a cub to a full grown bear and the countryside. The scenery is magnificent. It includes Mokie (John Yesno) a young Cree Indian who grows up not only to know the lore of his own native American people, but also to be a foreman for the Colonel on his cattle ranch. There is a mystical relationship between Moki and Wahb. The Bear returns and Moki has to defend the cattle ranch from grizzly havoc. Today's environmentalist would enjoy this Disney movie in which man and bear learn to co-exist in nature. This movie is based on a story circa 1899 that has all the features and content of a book authored by Ernest Thompson Seton. It is superb. Overall this is five-star entertainment for family viewing with several good lessons to be learned.

I first saw this film in the theater with my parents in the early '70's. It is a Disney adaptation of Ernest Thompson Seton's "Biography of a Grizzly." "King of the Grizzlies" is Disney fare, which means that it is definitely family-friendly AND possessed of excellent photography and cinematography.

The story itself loosely follows the plot of the original story but does not distort it. The original "Meteetsee Wahb" was an 1100-pound cattle killer that was not nearly as cuddly as this bear is, but the cinematic Wahb is very handsome, well-trained, and does evoke a certain sympathy for the species. Most Disney films featuring live-action animal performers were designed to evoke viewers' support for animals, and this one is no exception. To its credit, the film also does not represent an attempt to malign the reputation of early Western hunters or ranchers.

Great family fare to watch with your kids on a weeknight or a weekend afternoon.

This is a wildlife nature movie with a narration throughout. It can also double as a travelogue considering some of the incredible scenery. There are actors involved but very little dialog and absolutely no character development. They could have just as easily used sock puppets and achieved the same results. The star of this film was the grizzly bear Wahb. The story follows his life through many years, marked each step of the way by how much he weighed at any given time. His mother and twin sister are gunned down early in the film, by the faux villain of the piece (Chris Wiggins as the Colonel). Wahb is saved by falling into a river. He returns to the area eons later to exact his revenge when fate conspires to put Wahb, the killer Colonel, and Moki (John Yesno) together for a final showdown. In between there is a lot of frolicking, critter confrontations, fishing, grizzly romance, territorially fights, a stampede, and an entertaining interlude with Shorty (Hugh Webster), the shiftless ranch hand, who knows how to play dead so expertly that Wahb tries to bury him.
