Storyline

Donald is preparing a little picnic when he sees some ants passing by. He decides to tease one, ultimately by piling lots of food onto it. The ant eventually stumbles, but realizes Donald is sitting on a veritable gold mine. He rallies his fellow ants, and while Donald is napping, they cart him to a cliff and drop him into the river. When he returns to the raid in progress, he finds himself powerless to stop it. He dynamites the ant hill, but that only separates the ledge he's standing on, and he finds himself in the river again as the ants finish off a cupcake. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

User Reviews

 
My sympathies lie entirely with the ants!

This cartoon, nominated for an Oscar, is one of the better Donald Duck cartoons. Donald gets what he deserves and it's hilarious to boot. This cartoon is proof that drawing attention to yourself sometimes is a very bad idea. This shows on The Ink and Paint Club from time to time. Recommended.
