Hugely entertaining Donald and Pete short
7 April 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Having seen Pete often paired with Mickey, it was interesting to see Donald taking on Pete. And you can see this in The New Neighbor with hugely entertaining results. The story is crisp, with a situation that almost everybody will relate to, and never with a dull moment. And it also worked to Donald and Pete's trademark if contrastingly(to one another) different personalities perfectly, Donald is temperamental yet endearing and Pete is suitably dastardly and rude. The writing is very funny, with Donald and Pete each having good lines, and the gags helped by good timing likewise, seeing them go at it at the fence is just one part of the entertainment. The animation is smooth, beautifully drawn and colourful, and the music has much energy and character as well as having lush orchestration. Clarence Nash and Billy Bletcher are perfect as Donald and Pete.

Overall, highly recommended. 10/10 Bethany Cox
