Donald steals the show!, 1 June 2012
Author: TheLittleSongbird from United Kingdom

I have always enjoyed Disney Silly Symphonies, and while I do this one it's not one of my favourites. The story is rather routine with the orphans being mean to Donald and sweet with Mickey, the orphans may be deliberately undisciplined but here they are also bratty and hard to like and Mickey, while nice to see, is hardly in it and when he does appear he's not very funny. However, there is also Donald, who I usually do rely on to be at least a bright spot, and I wasn't disappointed. His frustration and very futile attempts to outwit the orphans are what drive the cartoon and he is hilarious for it. The gags are also amusing, with the two best gags involving bees, one with a bee sandwich and the other is Donald being chased by them. The pace is crisp, the animation is bright and colourful and the music is energetic. Walt Disney and Clarence Nash voice Mickey and Donald impeccably. Overall, an amusing but not great cartoon with Donald stealing the show. 7/10 Bethany Cox
