Donald is manning a listening post and falls asleep; he blows trumpet calls in his sleep and wakes his nephews. For their revenge, they send up a model airplane filled with gingerbread men with parachutes; Donald shoots it down, and cowers in fear when he sees the parachutes (and hears a simulated battle), until one lands on his beak. Donald kicks his nephews out until he mistakes a bee for an airplane, and calls them back to fight this menace. Written by

Worth watching but rather routine and not always consistent with the laughs
I do like the cartoons with Donald and his three nephews, especially Donald's Snow Fight, Donald's Nephews and Good Scouts. But Home Defense while certainly watchable and decent enough was lacking for me, in short not one of their best. The animation does look pretty, and the music has bundles of energy. I also liked how Donald's temperamental personality contrasted with Huey, Duey and Louie's cute ones, and Clarence "Ducky" Nash's vocal work is as impeccable as ever. However, the story is not always that crisply paced and is very routine. This would be helped if the gags were good, however while some do work and are imaginative there are also some that are reasonably amusing at best. In short, has moments but not enough to make it one of the better or funnier cartoons of theirs. Overall, decent but unexceptional. 7/10 Bethany Cox
