Storyline

Officer Donald Duck (Officer #13) is assigned to apprehend a criminal named Tiny Tom. Donald assumes by the name that he'll be a pushover but when he reaches Tom's hideout, he discovers "Tiny" Tom is actually a hulking Pete who immediately disposes of Donald. Donald decides to use strategy and is able to reenter Pete's house disguised as a baby who Pete surprisingly warms to. When Pete discovers Donald, he chases him down the street but is finally apprehended by Donald's marching police colleagues who make the arrest. Written by Matt Yorston <george.y@ns.sympatico.ca>

"I'm begging your pardon sir, but you're under arrest"
14 October 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

With the delightful pairing of Donald Duck and Pete, Officer Duck is an often hilarious and simply divine Silly Symphony gem. The animation is colourful and smooth, the music is very pleasant, and there are a ton of laughs, especially with Donald and his witty asides. There are many quotable lines too, and Donald himself, with the impeccable voicing of the one and only Clarence "Ducky" Nash, gives a very arresting performance. I was in tears of laughter when he disguises himself as a baby to fool the villain of the piece, Tiny Tom. Pete himself is marvellous as Tiny Tom, quite a dastardly villain, but a funny and charming one at the same time. If you come across this Silly Symphony, I strongly recommend you watch it. Tears and laughter are guaranteed. 10/10 Bethany Cox
