Storyline

Donald is stuck on KP at an air training base. Sergeant Pete gives him a huge pile of potatoes to peel first, then gives him some tests: close your eyes and touch fingers, pin the tail on the airplane. He finally gets sent aloft, only to discover it's a parachute jump. Eventually, both Donald and Pete end up falling with no chutes and a bomb. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

There's one bit of information that's often left out when someone writes about "Sky Trooper": the great Billy Bletcher plays Donald Duck's nemesis, Sgt. Pete.

The diminutive Mr. Bletcher had a large vocal range and a voice that could be tiny or 10 feet tall. He could do everything from little high voices to big-voiced villains like Pete. He played The Big Bad Wolf in all three of Disney's "3 Little Pigs" cartoons.

Bletcher was also the voice of Papa Bear in several cartoons in Chuck Jones' "Three Bears" series as well as other voices at Warner Bros. He stars in MGM's "The Captain and the Kids" series as the blustery Captain himself.

Bletcher first appeared on-camera in 1915 (an uncredited appearance in a silent film) and he worked as an actor (both on-camera and in voice over), writer and director until 1971.
