Storyline

On the night he promised to take his girl-friend Daisy out, Donald Duck discovers he's skinned. Desperate for spending money, he gets it in the last place he knows: his three nephews' piggy bank. After the wild clubbing night, she thanks the 'rich' big spender, which only makes Donald remember how penniless and guilty he is. Images of merciless pursuit by the police and rotting jail finish him off, so he takes a dish washing job, all night, but will that make everything all-right? Written by KGF Vissers

This is one of those rare occasions when Donald is a semi-sympathetic characters (sort of).

I generally spend my time waiting for Donald to get his well deserved comeuppance in most of his cartoons. This one, nominated for an Oscar, is one of the few times Donald even comes close to being a sympathetic character. Oh, Donald is his usual considerate, affable self, alright, but at a point in the cartoon toward the end, he actually becomes a bit more likable ad I almost felt sorry for him at times (almost). Very well done. This is shown from time to time on the Ink and Paint Club. Recommended.
