Storyline

Chip and Dale are starving in their tree home when they notice a plentiful supply of acorns on an island in a lake. To get to the island, they borrow a miniature model ship of Donald's to sail on. The irate Donald, however, doesn't appreciate them stealing his ship and makes several attempts to get it back and thwart their scheme to get to their acorn paradise. Chip and Dale are, of course, always one step ahead of Donald. Written by Matt Yorston <george.y@ns.sympatico.ca>

One of the rare shorts with Donald versus Chip an' Dale that worked for me

Normally, Donald and Chip an' Dale in a short together is like nails across a chalkboard for me. They just don't mesh well as far as I'm concerned. But this one works for me. It's funny and a plausible conflict between them exists here for a change. Entertaining and engaging. Well worth watching, this runs on The Ink and Paint Club periodically. Recommended.
