Hungry Hoboes (alternate spelling: Hungry Hobos)[1] is a 1928 American silent animation directed by Walt Disney featuring Oswald the Lucky Rabbit and Peg-Leg Pete.

The film was found in 2011 in the Huntley Film Archives after having been lost since before World War II. The Walt Disney Company later acquired the film at auction for US$31,250.[2][3]

The short was then restored in a year-long digital restoration. Hun­gry Hoboes re-debuted in Telluride, Colorado as part of a special animation shorts program presented by leading film historian and restoration expert Serge Bromberg at the 39th Annual Telluride Film Festival.[1]
