Little horrors
29 June 2005 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

While enjoying a calm, stress-free day, Donald is sent a postcard from his sister Dumbella, saying that her sons Huey, Duey and Louie will be coming to stay for a while. Now these are not the well behaved kids from Duck Tales that you might be used to. No, they are little rapscallions who proceed to do nothing but lay waste to Donald's house.

Donald desperately tries to keep them under control and even consults a child psychiatry book in a futile attempt to maintain order. It doesn't work and only inspires them to torment him further.

This cartoon is proof that Donald's sole purpose in his existence is to live it in a state of perpetual rage.
