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>

Hilarious Donald Duck short!
25 June 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I don't think it is quite as good as the stunning Flowers and Trees, but this is a truly funny Donald Duck short. The animation is excellent, as usual in a Silly Symphony, and I will say I love them to death. Donald's Snow Fight is also outstandingly scored with no weak moments. Donald duck is voiced marvellously by Clarence "Ducky" Nash, who had a very distinctive voice that was perfect for the character, and he also voiced the three nephews Huey, Douey and Louie, so it was a one man show. The short is full of hilarious bits, my favourite being when Donald dresses up in that over-sized overcoat and starts singing Jingle Bells. After he sees his nephews building a snowman he decides to ruin the fun and gets thwarted, causing a war between him and them, leading to hilarious consequences. I was kind of sad when Donald was frozen in the ice, but that isn't really a criticism. I loved this short, so I'll give it a 10/10 for entertainment value. Bethany Cox.
