Donald's first disaster outing.
28 May 2004 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

As we all know, whatever Donald Duck sets out doing at the start of any cartoon, by the end everything in the vicinity, be it house, car, shop, work, will be destroyed and Donald will be left fuming.

Here, Donald is working on plumbing in his basement, using a magnet to pick up objects from the floor. Pluto becomes curious to the magnet's strange powers and mucks around with it. Soon enough he's swallowed it and scrambles around the house trying to get it out, eventually tying up Donald in the shenanigans.

Cue running from flying knives, walking on the ceiling (including one moment when Donald bizarrely defies gravity) and general mayhem in which Donald's house is left in ruins.

It's what we expect and love about Donald.
