Not funny
3 August 2005 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

In this cartoon Donald goes to the beach for some fun in the sun. He takes a giant inflatable horse (called Seabiscuit) with him to play with in the water. Everything seems fine until Donald decides to torment Pluto for some reason by blowing water and air into his face, or something. The cartoon lingers on this bit of unfunnyness for a few minutes before it goes to the typical 'picnic being stolen by ants' routine. Good God, man. How many times have I seen that in a cartoon?

Donald and Pluto try to take them on but lose to their own arrogance and stupidity. No, this cartoon is not really that funny at all and Donald surely deserves better than this. I don't rate Beach Picnic very highly I'm afraid.
