Storyline

It's snowed, and Donald Duck is going sledding. Meanwhile, his nephews have built a snowman at the bottom of the hill. Donald aims his sled at their snowman and demolishes it, so the boys get even by including a boulder in the bottom of their next snowman. This means war, so they retreat to opposing snow forts for battle. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Overall, it's a nice Donald Duck's cartoon
15 December 2007 | by (The world of artists) – See all my reviews

I've always liked cartoons with Donald Duck and his nephews. His nephews are smart and funny, while Donald Duck's often explosive temper makes him hilarious.

This short has some nice artwork (much better than in "On Ice") and it also happens to be entertaining and very amusing.

More than Winter's time, it's Christmas time on this one and Donald Duck is happy to see snow. It's funny to see his beak frozen from the cold. It's also funny to see Donald Duck with an overcoat and a sled and singing "Jingle Bells". In the meantime, his nephews are building a snowman and singing "For he's a jolly good fellow". Donald can't resist and destroys their snowman with his sled, laughing out loud. That's when more funny moments come.

The funniest gag on this one is when Donald's nephews build a snowman on a rock and yell "It's Uncle Donald!" to fool him. When Donald crashes against it is a real scream! The effect is bombastic: with the violent shock, all of the fur from his overcoat shake off, except one. For the temperamental duck, this means war.

Other funny gags include snow falling on Donald making him look like a rhino in a cage and to see his nephews with the shape of bowling pins.

The ending, however, is unfair for Donald Duck because he gets frozen. His nephews were mean by doing this to him.

But, overall, this is a nice and enjoyable animated short with the comical Donald Duck.
