Storyline

Donald has to get up early, but everything seems to be working to keep him awake. His loudly ticking alarm clock resists several attempts to quiet it. Donald ultimately swallows it; the glow-in-the-dark dial can be seen through his feathers. Then his folding bed folds up on him. Springs start popping out of it; Donald builds an elaborate framework to hold it down. Finally, enough of the clock reassembles itself to sound the alarm and night is over.

Nighty night
6 October 2005 | by (The Underverse) – See all my reviews

Donald is planning an early night in an effort to get up early the next day. But first he cannot get comfortable in his bed and then the ticking of the alarm clock gets on his nerves and he just can't sleep. The annoyances escalate and eventually Donald goes completely berserk.

I admit I did laugh a few times at the start of this cartoon but it's a total one-joke affair. It became pretty unfunny rather quickly and my attention started drifting after his bed acted up for about the 86th time. Nah, there were some moments of good humor but overall I wasn't too impressed with this cartoon at all, despite the amusing beginning.

And why is Donald living in a different house every time we see him?
