Storyline

Quite entertaining
17 April 2004 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

'Sea Scouts' is an animated short movie from Disney starring Donald Duck as a captain of a ship. His nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie are his sailors. Of course things do not go as planned and when they want to sail away the ship falls apart. Donald has an encounter with a big shark. Now his nephews must save him.

The short is pretty funny. Especially the moments before the ship falls apart, one with some flags in particular, are great. The animation is quite good and makes sure this is a real cartoon. Sometimes very inventive, always pretty funny, this is another fine animated short from Disney.
