Storyline

A cartoon that satirizes hunting to the extreme. Donald Duck is inspired by his grandpappy to go hunting in the woods. Once there, all the hunters are greeted by hot dog vendors, ambulances, and fire engines. Nobody is going to be unprepared for the big day tomorrow when hunting season begins. The next day, the hunting is so intense that hunters use bazookas and tanks to catch their prey and are even parachuted out of airplanes onto the hunting grounds! After dodging some bullets and other chaos, Donald and his "grandpappy" finally leave the hunt with game, a cow (labelled "cow" by a local farmer so the hunters wouldn't confuse it for prey!).

No wonder this was nominated for an Oscar, this cartoon is brilliant!
15 November 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This cartoon is one of my all time favourite Donald Duck cartoons, it is a hilarious spoof of habits of the American Hunter. No wonder No Hunting was nominated for an Oscar, for it is a truly brilliant cartoon. It never fails to be short of funny, the final gag with the cow has to be one of the funniest gags ever in a Disney cartoon.

It wasn't just the humour that made No Hunting a true winner. Other aspects were the wonderful animation and the beautiful music. Plus the voice overs of Clarence Nash and Bill Thompson as Donald and Grandpappy. Both men did a splendid job I must say. Also watch out for Bambi and his mother in a surprise appearance. Overall, absolutely brilliant. A must see. 10/10 Bethany Cox
