Waste of money
4 October 2005 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

In that cartoon Donald Duck is visiting some kind of fair ground and stumbles upon a penny arcade. Inside he spots one of those slide-show machines with a film of Daisy stripping. He puts in his 1c only for the machine to break down before Daisy gets naked. Next he tries his luck at one of those awful claw-grab machines only for it to totally not work (come on, they NEVER work). Which, only irritates him further.

Finally, Donald comes upon a model plane on a gimble rig. For 1c it looks like a lot of fun and Donald sure enjoys mimicking a fighter plane. But thew ride only lasts for a few seconds. Angry, Donald bashes the plane which soon malfunctions and goes mental on him.

Funnier than it sounds, honest.
