A snowy scene; Daisy would like a fur coat, so Donald filches a baby bear from its sleeping mother. But the mother awakens and tracks Donald (and her baby) down. Donald uses his own fur coat to disguise himself as a bear cub. The real cub returns, and Donald looks like he might be in trouble, but a jar of honey turns him into the bear's best friend instead.

Trying to survive with Disney and Donald Duck
18 February 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Donald Duck is one of Disney's greatest creations, and this is an enormously enjoyable short with him in. He, helped by priceless facial expressions and witty asides, himself is on top form with the simple but crisply paced story playing strongly to his personality as well as making his motivations crystal clear. Clarence Nash's vocals are impeccable as per usual. The animation is vibrantly coloured and fluid, and there is some lushly orchestrated and very characterful-of the action, gags, story and characters and their expressions- music. The gags manage to be hilarious, Donald's attempts to shoot the baby bear and to keep the mother's rage at bay are fun to watch without being too cruel or creepy(so there isn't really anything to be upset over, or at me in my view). I also liked how the adorable baby bear didn't seem to understand that Donald was trying to kill him, shown clearly through his eyes and face, giving us a somewhat psychological portrait of someone innocent against someone dastardly. And as sweet as the baby bear is, at the end of the day Donald is the one we root for in a sense. In conclusion, a beautifully produced and very funny short, recommended highly. 10/10 Bethany Cox
