Meanwhile, the chipmunks of the forest (precursors of Chip 'n Dale), attracted by his squawking, make off with the huge pile of food he carelessly unloaded. They get the attention of a bear, who Donald is soon battling. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Donald Duck in vacations
30 July 2009 | by See all my reviews

In this cartoon, Donald Duck is in vacations and all he wants to do is just relax and enjoy the pure nature, its peace, its beauty, its environment...

He hoped his wish would come true. But it doesn't take long until he continually chases a chipmunk that is bothering him and soon he gets in trouble with a large bear. Donald is an expert when it comes to get in trouble with big wild animals. Donald should work in a zoo and take care of the wild animals. They'd surely get used to him :D

Generally speaking, this is a nice cartoon, with amusement, classic humor, adventure and the hilarious Donald Duck. Artwork is good either. Plus, the opening credits of the Donald Duck's cartoons always crack me up because the lyrics refer to him and we always hear him getting mad.
