A Donald Duck/Chip 'n' Dale classic, 20 March 2012
Author: TheLittleSongbird from United Kingdom

I happen to like the Donald Duck/Chip 'n' Dale cartoons. True, they are routine and predictable somewhat in the stories, but I find them so cute and funny I don't mind so much. Trailer Horn is one of my favourites of theirs alongside All in a Nutshell, Working for Peanuts and Corn Chips. I also like Gold Nut Donald, Chips Ahoy and Toy Tinkers just as much. The animation is colourful and fluid, not the most beautiful-looking cartoon of theirs, but still looks great, and the music has a lot of energy and lush orchestration. Trailer Horn has its fair shares of cute and funny moments, I liked the bit where the chipmunks were bouncing on the car horn while Donald was trying to sleep, but the best part was the last minute or so of the cartoon, which is a riot. Donald is great, I love his cantankerous personality and facial expressions, and Chip 'n' Dale are an ideal match for him, sweet, funny and a little antagonistic. Is it me though, or did anyone else find Chip cuter than Dale in Trailer Horn? Dale is usually the funnier of the two, while Chip is very no-nonsense, but here Chip is quite adorable in the first minute and a half of Trailer Horn. All in all, a classic and one of the better cartoons of the Donald/Chip 'n' Dale series. 10/10 Bethany Cox
