Trivia

The name of the Admiral that sends Donald the penguin is spelled as Bird, not Byrd. An intentional gag, as the Disney people didn't make typo mistakes very often. See more »

Tootsie!!!
15 March 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Ah, how much I love this cartoon. It is funny and cute if anything. Donald's Penguin also is lovingly animated, with detailed and colourful backgrounds and crisp character features. The music is as is the case with these Disney cartoons is excellent, the scripting is funny and there are some interesting sight gags such as the goldfish disappearing suddenly. The characters featured are engaging, Donald, superlatively voiced by Clarence "Ducky" Nash, is as cantankerous as ever. But in a rare case, he is almost upstaged by none other than Tootsie, who is one of the most adorable penguins I have seen in anything to do with animation. Also some lively chemistry between Donald and Tootsie and a simple but effective story.

Overall, sweet and entertaining! 10/10 Bethany Cox
