OK but not well structured
1 September 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Donald Duck bounces out of bed to prepare his cooked breakfast. High on his roof two chipmunks are scraping together a meagre breakfast when they smell the delicious food being fried up. They go down into the house to get some and Daffy is forced to defend his breakfast from the intruders.

The main weakness of this film is the inability of any of the characters to speak well. Donald is hard to understand but that is part of his character, however the chipmunk things are just irritating to my ears and I found their voices (and characters to be fair) pretty off putting. The film sees Donald painted as the baddie or fall guy and the audience is expected to side with the chipmunks, which again I didn't get. Surely Donald is merely trying to eat breakfast when these two start trying to steal it?

Regardless of this some of it is still amusing in part. Not of it is brilliant but it is OK. Another big complaint though is the abruptness of the ending. It finishes with one set-up joke which, barely has the conclusion to that been delivered, than the `The End' slide is up on screen. Why so sharp?

Overall I didn't enjoy this short because it required me to side with the chipmunks, both of whom annoyed me (I hate Chip and Dale too) with their high voices. It was still quite amusing but not worht a second look.
