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 <>

Sky Trooper really does soar...
10 April 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have a lot of nostalgia for the Disney cartoons, and this is especially true with Donald, whether with Chip 'n' Dale, Goofy and Mickey, Pete, his nephews Huey, Duey and Louie or by himself. Sky Trooper is a fine example of Donald with Pete. They work wonderfully together, with Donald likable and Pete amusing and sometimes scary. Both Clarence Nash and Billy Bletcher do a fantastic job with the voice work, their voices are distinctive yet both put so much energy into their characters, especially Bletcher. On top of that, the animation is beautiful, and there is a suitably jaunty music score that immediately draws you into the cartoon. The humour also works, with imaginative gags and inspired physical comedy. All in all, a soaring achievement really. 10/10 Bethany Cox
