Storyline

Donald is working in his greenhouse when he notices a bee harvesting nectar (well, actually, it appears to already be honey). Donald tries various approaches to find the hive, which despite the bee's best efforts to throw him off, he eventually discovers in the radiator of an old car. He drains the honey and starts to leave when the bee spots him and mounts an attack. The bee adds a cactus needle to extend his stinger. Donald relents and returns the honey all but one jar, until the bee spots him. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

More of the same Donald vs. Bee shorts.
17 May 2016 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This more of the same Donald Vs. Bee cartoon shorts, where Donald and the bee are at odds again. This time, Donald wants to take the honey the bee had been harvesting to use on his pancakes. However, the cocky and irritating little bee just wouldn't have it.

Not a lot of funny moments in this cartoon short - just a lot of back and forth duels between the two characters. At least, though, Donald didn't get too much of the brunt of bad luck, just a little sting, and the bee was left with an bad temper at the end.

In addition, I did like the "Whistle While You Work" tune that bee buzzes - reminds me of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Grade D
