Uncle Donald and three "angels without wings"

Donald Duck's sister Dumbella sends her three sons, Huey, Dewey and Louie to visit their uncle Donald.A bad mistake.These three little rascals cause a disaster in the house with their tricycles.Donald isn't getting any help from the little book "Modern Child Training".He tries music, he tries sympathy...But instead of angels these boys turn out to be little demons.Donald's Nephews from 1938 is the first film we get to see Huey, Dewey and Louie.The legendary Clarence Nash provides the voice for Donald and the nephews.Alongside Jack Hannah the other of the writers was the true Duck Master Carl Barks.No wonder this story works so good.It's very funny to watch Donald lose his temper.The scene where the boys give Donald a pie filled with very hot mustard...Hilarious.Cartoons today don't have that what the old ones did.They lack in providing laughter and amusement.This 8 minutes of pure fun sure made this boy laugh.
