It just never works out
15 September 2005 | by (The Underverse) – See all my reviews

Donald is another name for disaster. Why do you think Cockney rhyming slang uses Donald Duck for bad luck? In this cartoon Donald is a Fire Chief and his nephews his staff. Being such an incompetent leader he soon sets fire to the station-house itself and cannot save it for the life of him. Whether tackling raging hoses, falling through the sky or pumping gasoline into fire Donald suffers the worst of everything as Huey, Duey and Louie duck (pun intended) for cover.

The cartoon features some cuteness not often found in Disney shorts. I never really believed that was something he ever intended. The vivid animation always seems to be first and imaginative mayhem second. This short has all three.
