Donald battles someone almost as ill-tempered as he is in this average short

Nothing all that memorable or fascinating in this one, which is a by-the-numbers effort from Disney. Well animated, to be sure, but as for plot and action, it's in the "been there, seen that" category and doesn't really bring much to the table. Worth seeing once, but not terribly good, bad or indifferent-it simply is, which is kind of sad, in a way.
