Storyline

Gas station owner Donald thinks he's just missed the winning number for a new Zoom V8 car but his nephews hear a correction, and find he really does have the winner. They plan to pick it up and surprise him, but the car they take runs out of gas, and they're broke. They cut out the picture of a Zoom V8 from a billboard, dress one of the boys in drag, and trick Donald into filling their tank. As they drive off, Donald plots his revenge and executes it, when the boys return in Donald's new car. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Somewhat standard in the basic story, but very funny and beautifully animated
1 September 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

On the whole I really enjoy the Donald and Nephews shorts. They are routine in a way, but amusing and full of energy. Lucky Number is no exception, I'd go as far to say that it is one of their better shorts. It is rather standard and routine in the story, there is the idea of the nephews playing tricks on Donald and he goes ballistic which is a common theme in regard to their shorts. And I did think that it would have been better for Huey, Dewey and Louie ought to have told Donald in alternative to surprising him, mainly because Donald wouldn't come across as much of a jerk, especially when he plays a practical joke that backfires on him big-time. Evaluating that point though perhaps Lucky Number would have ended much sooner than it did if they did that. Conversely, it is very funny especially when one of the nephews dresses up as a sexy girl, and it is interesting to see for the first time a more teenage personality to the nephews. The animation is simply beautiful, full of detail and colour. The music has the energy and character that you'd expect also. Donald has always been at his best when he easily gets into a temper, which he does here, but at the same time this is not Donald at his most likable. Huey, Dewey and Louie have a mischievous streak though they have been more rascally and they still have their cuteness. Clarence Nash's voice work is as ever great. All in all, very funny and enjoyable with top notch production values but at the same time it is rather standard. 9/10 Bethany Cox
