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>

Donald Duck always down on his luck.
14 December 2015 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This was the final cartoon short in the Kids is Kids Disney video collection, and it consists of Donald working as a gas station owner. He thinks he doesn't have the winning ticket number for a new Zoom V8 car and steps away. But, his nephews hear the radio DJ announce a correction on the winning number and Donald indeed has won the car! But, as bad luck would have it, instead of telling Donald that he won the car, the nephews decide to get the car and surprise him, but doesn't work out as according to plan.

This cartoon short has only a tad of funny moments (like the part where one of the nephews dresses up in drag) but really has that palm on your face element as Donald gets probably the mother of all bad lucks in this one. Instead of having a new car, he jumps to conclusions and takes revenge on his nephews, whom he thinks cheat him out of some gas. He could be riding in his new car and enjoying the landscapes, instead, he is running through them, angrily going after his nephews.

Overall, it's not a very funny cartoon and the story has no redeeming qualities.

Grade D-
