Nice second half
16 May 2004 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

In this Walt Disney cartoon we see Donald Duck irritated by Pegleg Pete who is playing the trombone in the most terrible way. Not only Donald hates it; in the sky we see the gods Jupiter and Vulcan quite irritated as well. When the gods discover that neighbor Donald has some trouble with it as well they give him some of their powers. When Donald finds out he has some special powers he goes to Pete to learn him a lesson. The gods are pleased at first, but Donald knows how to spoil that...

'Trombone Trouble' is a nice cartoon although it is pretty dull in the first half. The second half makes up for that. The Donald Duck cartoons are almost always entertaining and there is no exception here. The voice of Donald Duck is provided by Clarence Nash.
