If it weren't for the kid...
12 April 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

then this cartoon I would have liked much more. Bellboy Donald is actually a good cartoon, with beautiful animation, lively music that adds much to the effectiveness of the gags, good physical humour and a nice if unexceptional story where Donald triumphs over his antagonist. Plus Donald is still likable, even with the temperamental personality. I personally do prefer Billy Bletcher's more rapacious voice for Pete, but John McCleish still did a great job with a voice that was more fitting I think for Pete's more eloquent demeanour. However, if there is one thing I don't like about Bellboy Donald, it was the character of Pete's son, even as a child watching and this and many other Disney cartoons I have never been able to stand that kid. It makes me wonder whether Disney actually intended the character to be such an unlikeable brat that you actually want Donald to triumph over him.

Overall, apart from the kid I do like Bellboy Donald. 8/10 Bethany Cox
