Did You Know?


Features the concluding scene from Donald Gets Drafted (1942) (Donald cutting potatoes). See more »


In the first dog-feeding scene, a soldier gives a dog named Hercules a bowl of food. Hercules' dog house has a sign that says "Hercules" on it. In a following scene, Smythe gives Hercules a dog treat, and he's in a different dog house, without the name sign. In the rest of the shots, he's in the original dog house with the name sign.

Sgt. Rust: [as Sgt. Rust goes to the barracks] The Bible had it all wrong, there is not just heaven and hell. They forgot to mention me, drill-sergeant Rust. It is time to rise and shine girls. My wish is your command.
[louder to Danny Stauffer]
Sgt. Rust: Are you dreaming, sweetheart? This is not your home, I am not your mother. Get up! Do you understand?
[Sargeant Rust then lifted Stauffer's bed and knocking Stauffer to the floor and waking him up]

Cute movie
26 January 2002 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

This was one of the early Disney films that was made and premiered on the Disney Channel. I remember first seeing it in 1990 and not seeing it again until 5 or 6 years later.(Of course now I own the video.) It's a cute movie for kids and stars William Devane, Brandon Douglas, and the absolutely gorgeous Ellie Cornell who steals every scene she's in. Overall this is a cute movie which kids should enjoy, if you can take your eye off Ellie Cornell.
