Storyline

Donald Duck would never believe it, but he suffers from sleepwalking. In this blessed innocent state he makes a nightly call at Daisy's, as if it were the time of their romantic appointment; knowing one should not wake or contradict a sleepwalker, she plays along, but finds it increasingly difficult to follow Donald and prevent him coming to harm when he ignorantly strolls the most dangerous places, such as the lion's cage in the zoo, including impossible ones, such as up a wall and even upside down. When she finally gets Donald safely in bed, he wakes up and thinks, seeing her sneak out, she's the sleepwalker... Written by KGF Vissers

Donald sleepwalking on a date?
7 June 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Sleepy Time Donald was interesting to say the least. It is not one of my favourite Donald Duck cartoons, it lacks the originality of a cartoon like Modern Inventions in the story and the whole Donald seemingly defying physics and gravity while sleepwalking may seem strange within this concept. However, it is also very funny, the gags while again not the most imaginative on the block are amusing especially the one with the ring and the female ape. The animation is beautiful in Sleepy Time Donald as well, full of lovely colours, fluid backgrounds and good character designs. The music is energetic, dynamic and very action-enhancing, and while Donald does well in a role here that requires not much to do in comparison to his other cartoons I loved that Daisy had more to do here and she really shines, you can really tell she cares about him. All in all, a good Donald Duck cartoon, but not one of his best. 8/10 Bethany Cox
