Donald is courting Daisy (called Donna, here in her first appearance) Duck in Mexico. He arrives on a burro, which doesn't get along at all well with her; she convinces him to buy a car. They head through the desert, but the car breaks down, and throws Donald out, then takes off on its own with Daisy trapped inside the rumble seat. The car hits a rock, throwing Daisy into a mud puddle, to Donald's excessive amusement. Daisy pulls a unicycle from her purse, and rides off. Written by

This is the first 1937 Donald Duck cartoon "Don Donald" to have Donald Duck getting mad at Jenny the donkey calling it a jackass. The second time he would call Jenny the donkey a jackass is in the 1942 Donald Duck cartoon "The Village Smithy". It would remain uncensored even during the 1983-2001 Disney Channel classic cartoon era. On the VHS tape "Starring Donald and Daisy." and on the "Walt Disney Treasures DVD The Chronological Donald Volume 1." See more »
This is the first cartoon that features Donald Duck's girlfriend, Daisy, though she is called Donna in this short and her voice is similar to Donald's. It is also the first cartoon starring Donald Duck as top billing. Here, he arrives in his burro and tries to court Donna in Mexico, but things don't go well at first, leaving the two ducks quarreling and fighting, with Donna getting the upper-hand. She proves to be an aggressive snob and, in my opinion, unlikable in this story.
There are funny moments though, which includes Donald's classic temper and frustrated demeanor, and his car breaking down, throwing Donna around left and right. Donna's voice being similar to Donald's was also somewhat funny; it's like hearing two Donald Ducks bickering with each other. Donald's burro is a bit annoying though, not cooperating with Donald and causing him to get in trouble with Donna.
Overall, not one of the better Donald/Daisy cartoons. Donald was OK in this one, but Daisy was unlikable.
