Storyline

Donald cheerfully sets up his umbrella etcetera for a day at the beach, but so did a mischievously lazy bee, who doesn't accept his actions inadvertently mess up the bee's spot. Once Donald is in the water in an inflatable raft, the irate insect uses its angle to sting not the duck, but the dingy, more often then Donald has fingers and toes to stuff in the holes, next makes sure to attract the 'gastronomical' attention of a whole band of sharks: duck hunting season at sea is open. Donald uses all the resourcefulness of desperation, and his only weapon, the beach umbrella... Written by KGF Vissers

Duck vs Bee in a lively cartoon
8 April 2012 | by See all my reviews

As someone who has always loved Donald Duck and the cartoons with him in, I have always liked this cartoon. The animation is full of colour and vibrancy, and the music brims with energy. The gags come by thick and fast, are very funny(sometimes even hilarious) and are very well-timed. For me, the ending was the only one that didn't quite work, all it did was make me feel sorry for Donald. The story is crisply-paced and never dull, Donald is his entertaining and temperamental self and the bee is a cute in appearance if somewhat sadistic contrast.

In conclusion, a lively, beautifully animated and funny cartoon with Donald and the bee tremendous to watch. 9/10 Bethany Cox
