It's a peaceful day in a local city when suddenly, duck J.J. Fate appears to lecture us on how "fate" isn't to blame for accidents, people are! He uses Donald Duck as an example. Donald is extremely accident prone. He lights his pipe in a room with a gas leak, slips on a throw rug while carrying a fish bowl, overloads electrical outlets, and continually falls down the stairs. Finally, Donald has had enough and fixes his house guaranteeing no more accidents. That's good for Donald but the rest of the accident prone city still has to learn "not to blame fate for your carelessness". Written by

In the words of JJ Fate, "An awkward attitude, by an inattentive, accident prone individual"
It may be unusual to see a Disney How to short with Donald as the lead character rather than Goofy. That doesn't matter though because How to Have an Accident in the Home still manages to be almost as good as the best of Goofy's How to shorts. How to Have an Accident in the Home may not have the best animation of any Disney short, but it still looks colourful and fluidly drawn and it never undermines the quality of the gags. The gags- revolving around Donald's accidents around the house and JJ Fate getting the blame- themselves are quite brutal but also hilarious and imaginative, while the character of JJ Fate has a very informative role. The music is lovely to listen to and adds a lot of life and energy to the story. Donald's temperamental personality and charisma are put to great use. The voice work is very good as well.
So overall, hilarious and informative. 10/10 Bethany Cox
