Storyline

Baseball fan and would be-star Donald Duck enjoys listening to a World Series game on the radio and 'playing' the part of his favorite star Casey in his own yard. Unfortunately a melomanic apis melifera (Latin for honeybee) is as avid to listen on the same radio to a mellifluous symphony and play the director theatrically, waving a match as baton, instead of fertilizing his garden flowers. Donald first just turns the switch, then hides it, but the bee dials inside, so he tries to chase it, but is scared by the sting. The battle for channel choice gets worse, and vindictive...

Baseball vs. classical music as the battle continues...
30 March 2008 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

"Buzz-Buzz" is enjoying a sunny afternoon in Donald Duck's garden, listening to classical music, when Donald enters with a newspaper proclaiming something about The World Series. The moment he switches the radio to his series game, the battle begins.

SLIDE DONALD SLIDE is another in a series of Donald "B" films, and it's amusing in every way. The stubborn bee keeps switching Donald's baseball game to music, which of course makes Donald see red. The bee even goes so far as to enter the inside of the radio to make some adjustments that bring the music back on. He's such a cleverly animated bee that he almost steals the show from Donald.

Donald's every attempt to re-enter the garden has the bee getting his stinger ready, forcing the duck to retreat. Finally, he plays a dirty trick with a fake radio that has the bee doing a slow burn. Still, while he's showering, the bee finds the real radio again and conducts the music with so much vigor that he's almost exhausted by the time a symphony is over and Donald has another fit.

Amusing stuff with some very clever animation as the radio commentator's description of the game matches Donald's and the bee's movements in the garden.
