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

Enjoyable short, with the exasperation meter on Donald hitting the red zone for Daisy!

This is an entertaining little short, nothing special but enjoyable. Donald, under the best of circumstances, is rarely charming and often a handful. Here, he's quite seriously irritating and irksome. It is truly a tribute to the patience of others that he is not under glass and coated with and orange glaze, surrounded by peas and carrots! Many a Chinese restaurant should put "Peking" in front of him with the full treatment. Worth trying to find, Disney runs this on Quack Attack on Toon Disney and Ink and Paint Club on The Disney Channel. Recommended.
