A great, lavish cartoon, with just three characters and one tree
30 March 2002 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

If you think Donald's hard to understand, try listening to Disney director Jack Hannah's other specialty, chipmunks Chip and Dale. Sometimes I can't make out a single word they say, sometimes I can make out about half of them; it depends on the current state of my brain, not on the particular cartoon. This feature of Disney cartoons (Hannah's especially) is one of the things that make them, at their best, great. It's like silent comedy in which we can hear (but not understand) what the people are saying. And the chipmunk's rapid-fire, chirpy voices ensure that they remain, at least partly, animals, and not human beings with a furry appearance.

This exceptionally funny confrontation between Donald and the chipmunks is made even greater than other such encounters (equally funny) by its profusion of stylised backgrounds. The treetop is a confusing three-dimensional labyrinth (apart from the fact that one cannot become trapped) of branches and foliage. This is reflected not just in some particular backgrounds but by the fact that there's always a DIFFERENT background. There's also a remarkable amount of variety in KINDS of backgrounds, within a unified style. Character animation is superb, the gags are amusing, apt, and crisply timed ... but all this goes without saying.
