Donald's battle with ants makes for some very enjoyable entertainment
5 April 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Uncle Donald's Ants is not one of Donald's best, but any short of his is worth a look and it is no exception here. The animation is a little lacking in finesse at times, Donald's first entrance looked a little rough, but most of it is smooth with the vibrant colour you expect. The music is wonderful, fitting with every gag, sound, action and expression, I particularly enjoyed the march-like theme for the ants at the beginning. The story is simple, but always amusing, crisply paced and Donald giving the sugar to the ant was very sweet. The humour is very Donald, very Disney, but not to the sense that it's over-familiar. What's more the gags are very funny. The story plays to Donald's trademark personality beautifully, and he is very enjoyable and charismatic to watch as always. The ants steal the show though, their language(yes they have their own language, and it's so cool!) alone is priceless. Clarence Nash shows that after nearly two decades of voicing Donald that he still has it with no signs of faltering. To conclude, enjoyable and entertaining, liked it very much. 8/10 Bethany Cox
