Beach Picnic (1939)

** (out of 4)

Donald is on the beach trying to rid a rubber horse but he keeps getting thrown from it so when he sees Pluto sleeping he decides to have some fun and watch the dog fight it. Soon a group of ants (acting as Indians) show up to steal their food. BEACH PICNIC has some great animation and one good sequence but overall it's a pretty lackluster short from Disney. The one great sequence is when the ants start taking away the food because the music and the animation is just so good here. I think the weakest part of the film is the opening bits with the rubber horse as there's just really nothing too clever or funny going on here as we simply see Donald and Pluto fall around. Fans of the characters will probably want to watch this but the rest should look for a better film.
