Very funny but also with a somber note, 30 August 2012
Author: TheLittleSongbird from United Kingdom

The story is somewhat standard, despite the Thanksgiving setting the "nephews cruelly trick Donald" scenario has been done before. Maybe it is just me also, but I didn't get the significance of the title. This said, Soup's On is a very beautiful-looking Disney short, with colourful backgrounds and crisply drawn characters. The music and sound effects have always been a big part of why the Disney shorts work so well, and Soup's On is no exception, the music is very energetic and the sound effects are well-placed and never bizarre. There are some fun gags as well, the one where Donald slips on the toy and falls down the stairs into the fireplace, the one with Donald falling down after trying to fly with his "angel wings" and especially the one where Donald getting his own back by disguising himself as the devil. There is also a sombre and quite poignant note in the sequence where Donald genuinely does believe he is dead. Donald is both easily frustrated and an unreasonable authority character here, both sides to his character are done very well, while the nephews are mischievous yet cute as well. Overall, very funny and beautifully animated if not one of my favourites. 9/10 Bethany Cox
