The Riveter (1940)
User ReviewsAdd a Review
This is Donald at one of his best, displaying his frustrated and bad luck prone personality. It will send laughter to a wide audience, as the action, goofs and gags are just a treat to watch.
The animation is vibrant, the music is catchy and the sound effects are wild. Despite Donald always getting a lot of bad luck, he seems to get the last laugh in many of his misadventures in this one. It's one of the best Donald cartoon shorts!
In this cartoon an apparently unemployed Donald is wandering around town singing the High-Ho song from Snow White. He comes upon a construction site and applies for the job of Riveter despite obviously having no experience in this field.
Much to his distress he begins his day of labor at the top of a zillion-foot high skyscraper (though the elevator only ascends 1 floor!) and his boss is an easily irritated man. Disaster follows as per usual but at least this one ends with Donald getting the upper hand on his beastly boss.
