Working for Peanuts is an amusing Disney Donald Duck cartoon
28 April 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

What a treat to see this vintage Donald Duck cartoon, Working for Peanuts, in its original 3-D version before the feature Meet the Robinsons. In this one Donald is a zoo keeper trying to keep Chip 'n' Dale from stealing peanuts from the elephant, Delores. Lots of gags involving begging, catching, or singing and dancing for peanuts abound in perfect three-dimensional style. Not the most hilarious Disney or Donald Duck cartoon but a nice added attraction before the big feature. It's nice when the company occasionally shows one of their vintage short subjects before their newest movie. By the way, I found out here Dale is the one with the red nose.
