Donald Duck (voice)


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...

A truly excellent Donald Duck short
4 December 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In fact, one of my favourites actually. The animation is bright and colourful with no jerky movements or blocky character designs. Also with the merging of the radio commentary and Donald and the bee's movements there are some really clever moments visually too. Coming from a lifelong classical music enthusiast, I found the music to be a real delight, the choices were well-chosen and sounded lively and beautiful. Donald is as temperamental and funny as ever, and the bee is an excellent foil with priceless facial expressions. The gags are hilarious, especially the one with the fake radio and dynamite. Donald getting locked in the shower is a scene where it is amusing but also where you do feel sorry for Donald at the same time. The story moves quickly and is told in a fresh way. Clarence Nash's voice work as Donald is spot-on as always.

All in all, truly excellent short that succeeds in being colourful and hilarious fun. 10/10 Bethany Cox
