It's October 7th and Chip is working industriously to store enough acorns in the tree for the winter. Dale would rather sleep in his matchbox, but an angry kick from Chip gets him working furiously. But there's only so much they can do. Their tree is nearly out of acorns. Luckily, the two semi-intelligible chipmunks happen to see the half-unintelligible Donald Duck, a park ranger, planting acorns. They immediately set to steal his bag of the precious nuts. Donald soon realizes what they are up to, and sets out a box propped up with a stick. It's a crude trap, with an acorn as bait; but it's not too crude to fool Dale, who upsets it and traps Chip. Soon, Donald finds he can have fun instigating a fight between these two quarrelsome chipmunks, but he underestimates their friendship and their ability to work as a team against a common enemy: in this case, a bad-tempered duck.

Winter Storage with Donald Duck and Chip 'n' Dale...
8 March 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I can never get enough of these cartoons. No matter how routine story-wise they are, they are always amusing and beautiful visually and musically. Winter Storage is not quite one of the best of Donald Duck or Chip 'n' Dale, but it is no exception to the assets that make their cartoons so watchable. The animation is not exactly exceptional, I have seen other cartoons of theirs that are more vibrant in the colours, but the backgrounds are fluid and the characters are beautifully drawn. Like with all Donald Duck/Chip 'n' Dale cartoons, it is wonderfully orchestrated musically, with a lot of typical energy to it. The humour is mostly sight gags-driven, and while DD/C&C have done funnier cartoons, such as All in a Nutshell and Toy Tinkers, there are some amusing moments, such as Dale accidentally giving Donald a black eye. Donald is a great foil as ever, and Chip 'n' Dale are cute and antagonistic, I've always loved the contrast between Chip's sterner personality to Dale's goofier one. In conclusion, a very nice and amusing cartoon. 9/10 Bethany Cox
