One of the most hilarious Donald cartoons!, 11 June 2015
Author: OllieSuave-007 from California, USA

Donald is at home listening to a radio cooking program, which was giving lessons in how to make waffles that particular day. While he mixes the ingredients, Donald becomes distracted and uses rubber cement he left on the table instead of baking powder. What results is one hilarious mishap after the other.

This cartoon consists of classic Donald humor, from slapstick gags to his frustrated innuendos, trying to bring his bowl of rubber cement-soaked under control. But, the bowl won't give as it inadvertently leads to Donald getting his tail seared in the waffle iron and causing cracks to run from the ceiling to the floor. The laughs pile on and on as poor Donald lets the bad luck get the best of him. His facial expressions are humorous and the background organ music adds onto the tense moment of Donald's battle with the batter. Even the cooking program's voice, with her strong Southern accent, was too much not to laugh with.

I haven't laughed so much at a cartoon short before. It's one of the most hilarious ones I've seen featuring Donald!
