Not that funny
15 November 2004 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This Donald Duck cartoon starts with cousin Gus Goose who is visiting Donald Duck. Donald has no idea who he is, but after a note from his aunt he lets the goose inside his house. The note said that Gus does not each much, but as soon as he is in he starts eating all of Donald's food. Gus drives Donald crazy and of course he tries to get rid of the goose.

The first minute is pretty nice with some good gags and a well animated sequence where Gus is eating everything. But after that it is too much of the same. After a couple of minutes I wanted this cartoon to end. Not a good thing for a Disney cartoon; I normally enjoy them very much.
