Very Bad Kids
20 January 2005 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

Mickey and Donald very kindly treat the local orphans to a picnic in the countryside. And how do they repay them? By tormenting them and ruining the picnic. How about that for gratitude. It's not massively funny but the orphans (all looking like little Mickeys) are so cute. And would I be correct in assuming that they made an appearance in the Toon Town scene in Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

Vividly animated it may well be but beneath the cleverness of some gags and the class of it's appearance there ain't much laughs in Orphan's Picnic. If I had my way the little scoundrels would be cleaning chimneys for the rest of their life for that behaviour.
