Storyline

Donald has a walnut-shaped shop where he makes nut butters. When his supply runs out, he taps the tree where Chip and Dale have been storing nuts. The chipmunks discover Donald's shop and think it's a giant walnut. When they finally break in, they start filching the finished product from Donald, and it takes him some time to notice.

Back in the days when Disney were not afraid to not be politically correct...
3 March 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I love Disney, and I also love the Donald Duck/Chip 'n' Dale cartoons. No matter how routine in the story they are, they never fail to charm and amuse me. All in a Nutshell is not only one of their best, but also one of their funniest. I especially love the part where Donald was shot out of the log cannon doing Goofy's famous yell. Is the story routine? Yes in a sense it is, but this doesn't matter, when All in a Nutshell is so well paced and funny. The animation is typically wonderful, all three characters are beautifully drawn, and there is so much detail in the backgrounds. The music is enough to lift even the heaviest hearts, from the jaunty motifs of the background music to the spirited opening credits song that you can find on other cartoons of theirs and on those with Donald on his own. Donald is a great foil to them, witty and cantankerous, and the chipmunks are cute in appearance but man can they be quite antagonistic. I have to say though, they sure like their nuts don't they? Overall, one of the best Donald Duck/Chip 'n' Dale cartoons, shows you are never too old to love Disney. 10/10 Bethany Cox
