The Legend of Rockabye Point

The Legend of Rockabye Point is a 1955 Chilly Willy cartoon directed by Tex Avery and produced by Walter Lantz. Starring both Chilly Willy and Maxie the Polar Bear (here named Charlie and portrayed as an antagonist), it was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film, but lost to Speedy Gonzales. This is also the second (and last) Chilly Willy cartoon directed by Avery.

Plot

An old fisherman tells the legend of a starving polar bear (Charlie) and a penguin (Chilly Willy) who attempted to steal bluefin tuna from his ship 20 years before.
