It is great to work for peanuts isn't it?
7 March 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I love Disney, I love Donald Duck and I do like Chip 'n' Dale. I loved Working for Peanuts as a child and I still thoroughly enjoy it now. It is not the funniest Chip 'n' Dale/Donald Duck cartoon I've seen- though the parts where Donald falls into the hippo's mouth with the falling downstairs sound effect, when he runs into the wall(and his dazed expression afterwards, it looks so funny and for a duck Donald has perfect teeth) and the ending are hilarious indeed- but I did like how the story was less routine than some of their other outings and that you could actually understand what Chip 'n' Dale were saying. The animation is simple with beautifully drawn characters and rich colours. The backgrounds are not as fluid as in some of their other cartoons, but they are nice enough. The zoo setting was interesting also. The music is typically great with lots of energy, I especially loved the instrumental at the start and the I am gonna wash-a Dolores song is so darn catchy, don't you think. The humour is mainly sight gag-based and Working For Peanuts succeeds wonderfully here. Chip 'n' Dale are very cute and funny, not as antagonistic as they can be(ie. Squatter's Rights) and I am thankful for that in a sense, and Donald is his usual reliable self with the two funniest sight gags of Working For Peanuts, but the real highlights were between Chip 'n' Dale and Dolores, who is very endearing. Plus I don't think I have seen a cartoon elephant that can move their bottom like Dolores can. All in all, a great cartoon. 10/10 Bethany Cox
