Storyline

Chip and Dale, the pesky chipmunks, meet up with Donald Duck as he is flying a model airplane with a gas engine. Dale gets into the model and pilots it through a series barrel-rolls and spins, with Donald hanging onto the tail. Donald gets the controls when Dale bails out, but a line from the plane catches the spire if a tall building and Donald and the plane spiral around the skyscraper far into the night.

Mildly amusing Donald versus Chip an' Dale

Chip an' Dale shorts are entirely too often rather boring, lifeless affairs because the characters aren't all that interesting in and of themselves. Donald is the attraction here for the most part. Largely an unsympathetic character, there are moments where I found myself actually pulling for him in this one. Worth watching at least once, even though it isn't vintage Disney.
