'This is very, very exasperating.'
28 July 2005 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

In this cartoon an ungainly and annoying goose called Gus turns up at Donald's house with a note from Aunt Fanny (?) claiming that he is his cousin and is here for a visit. The note also says he doesn't eat much, which turns out to be a total lie since Gus proceeds to eat Donald out of house and home and turn an otherwise peaceful, non-stressful day for Donald into bedlam.

Gus is an annoying character but thankfully he doesn't say much and only ever makes a honking sound when he wants attention, which he does by squeezing his ass! Much like Donald, I hope to never see Gus again. And this cartoon ain't that great I'm afraid.
