Storyline

Donald gets off the bus and heads home hoping to get a good night's sleep. At first, his plans for rest are disturbed by an open window shade which lets light from a flashing sign in. After that problem is dealt with, Donald is kept awake by a persistently dripping faucet. Donald tries to ignore it but after a while, it becomes aggravating to put it mildly. Donald makes several attempts to stop the dripping and finally at least is able to keep it under control via a Rube Goldberg contraption. At this point, Donald receives a call from his water company telling him he hasn't paid his water bill so they're cutting off his water! Written by Matt Yorston <georgey@atcon.com>

Donald and his battles with water...
10 January 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am a fan of Disney and Donald, and Drip Dippy Donald was even better than I remembered. The animation is full of vibrancy and detail in the colours and backgrounds, and Donald himself is very well drawn as you'd expect. Many times I've said that the music is a large component of why the Disney shorts work as well as they do and that is true of Drip Dippy Donald too. The orchestration is both lively and sensitive, and above all it is memorable and fits perfectly with the action. What was also good about Drip Dippy Donald was that it took an identifiable subject, and convey it in a funny way as well as showing a serious side. The mix of realism and hyperbole really worked well, the whole hyperbole sequence is amazing without going far off the radar in surrealism. The various ways of how the water causes Donald to go nuts makes for great entertainment and gives Donald a situation where he can play to his strengths. And play to his strengths Donald did, he is easily frustrated, on the edge and eventually almost out of his mind, qualities that show him at his best. Clarence Nash is impeccable with his Donald voice ever distinctive. All in all, Drip Dippy Donald is truly excellent, nothing I can say that is wrong. 10/10 Bethany Cox
