Storyline

Donald owns a farm; he sings Old MacDonald while feeding the animals. He goes to milk Clementine the cow, but she's not in the barn: she's up a tree, nibbling on leaves. She floats down, and the milking goes well. Her tail stops swinging; Donald leans over to check and it swats him in the face. The milking is again interrupted by some flies buzzing around; Donald pulls his hat over his head and the fly gets inside, in the confusion, Donald gets his hat and pail confused. Donald starts firing milk at the fly in retaliation, but the fly manages to get the cow to send Donald flying. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Trivia

The title is based on the children's song "Old MacDonald Had a Farm" about a farmer named MacDonald and the various animals he keeps on his farm. Each verse of the song changes the name of the animal and its respective animal noise. The song was first published in 1917 and is considered a traditional song. See more »

Watchable, but one of my least favourite Donald Duck cartoons
25 October 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Old MacDonald Duck is a watchable cartoon, with some very good animation and some lovely music. Though I admit I am starting to get annoyed with that song Old MacDonald, and the numerous versions of it. Donald is still as likable as ever, and Clarence Nash does very well with the voicing. But I felt that Donald was out of character here, he doesn't get as angry as much and that is what makes him funny. Also the story is disappointingly non-eventful and routine, as others have said, very little happens. And for me, the only really hilarious bit was the ending.

Overall, has some nice animation and music, and Donald is great, despite him being a tad out of character, but the story and jokes don't come to life as much as they should. 6/10 Bethany Cox
