Storyline

An elderly bee, seeing an equally elderly Donald Duck in the park, looks back on their long partnership. The bee started helping Donald pick up trash, then using his sharp stinger to increase sales for balloon vendor Donald, then as a tattoo artist, and finally doing embroidery. After a particularly demanding tapestry, the bee asks for time off, and Donald shows him to a custom-built greenhouse. In there, along with lots of lovely flowers, and moreover, a lady bee. This obviously causes some problems in the relationship with Donald. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

A nice, feel-good Donald Duck cartoon.
26 May 2017 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This is nice little Disney cartoon featuring the friendship between Donald Duck and a bee. It is set in the day when both characters are elderly, and the bee looks back in the day when the two formed a partnership of doing balloon vending, tattoo artist and embroidery. But, the bee meeting a lady bee in Donald's greenhouse and falling in love created a hitch in the partnership.

It was nice seeing Donald befriend another animal and work together for a change. In other cartoons, Donald always get in quarrels and fights with them. It was also nice seeing the friendship grow and seeing the flashback scene - nostalgic and like reminiscing the good ol' days. A more unique Donald Duck cartoon - not much laughs, but a nice, feel good one.
