Donald's descent into the horrors of matrimony with hilarious consequences, 27 February 2010
Author: TheLittleSongbird from United Kingdom

Elegant, funny and really nice to watch, Donald's Diary was thoroughly enjoyable. Gloria Blondell is terrific as Daisy, the girl of Donald's dreams, and Clarence Nash once again provides the voices of Donald and the three nephews Huey, Duey and Louie and as always does impeccably. Leslie Denison, in a very Ronald Colman-like style, gives a very sophisticated account of himself as the narrator. Along with beautiful animation, wonderful music and a very nice concept, it is just a nice cartoon to watch. There are also some funny moments, Donald carrying Daisy up all those stairs was hilarious, though I did feel sorry for Donald, he goes through such a lot here. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this. 10/10 Bethany Cox
