Donald chasing the stars
2 April 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This has everything I love about Donald Duck and his cartoons and more. Donald as always is great fun, still with his trademark cantankerous personality but there is still something endearing about him. The story is one of the most original of his cartoons, it is well paced and I loved the celebrity (caricatures?) of Shirley Temple, "Mickey Rooney", Bette Davis, the Ritz Brothers, Lionel Barrymore, The Andrews Sisters, Greta Garbo, Clark Gable and Groucho and Harpo Marx(among others). The gags are very imaginative and wonderfully timed, especially the three tricks "Mickey Rooney" plays on Donald(the one with the egg was the best one) and the Ritz Brothers writing their group name on Donald's bottom. The animation is clean and vibrant, and the music is typically energetic. The voice work is spot on as well. Overall, one of Donald's best cartoons in my opinion. 10/10 Bethany Cox
