Storyline

Donald reads in his newspaper that eggs are really going up in value and the price is skyrocketing. Donald realizes that if he had some eggs, he would be quite the wealthy duck so he breaks into a nearby hen-house and collects as many eggs as possible putting them all in a huge basket. Unfortunately, a rooster standing guard makes his presence known and ejects Donald. The inventive duck is able to get back in disguised as a female chicken who the rooster falls for and dances with. Unfortunately, with the rubber glove comb constantly coming loose and a caterpillar falling down the back of his suit, he is ever at the risk of being discovered.

Yes it's predictable, but it puts a smile on my face
5 April 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Golden Eggs does have a somewhat predictable story, but it is a fun Donald Duck cartoon that leaves me smiling. The animation is very good for its time, with lovely backgrounds and colours. Another delight was the music, it is rousing and beautiful like in most Silly Symphonies. I love a good score in films, TV shows and cartoons, and this is no exception. The jokes are good, very funny if like the story a little on the predictable side. The voice acting from Clarence "Ducky" Nash as Donald and Florence Gill as the hens is top notch as always, Nash rarely disappoints when he voices Donald. As for Donald himself, he isn't as cantankerous as he is in the cartoons with him and his nephews, but he is funny. The barn rooster is a fun supporting character too, and the little caterpillar is sweet. Overall, puts a smile on my face no matter how predictable it is. 8/10 Bethany Cox
