Storyline

Baby Huey, the over-sized duck, is enrolled in kindergarten but his size and clumsy attempts to fit in causes such havoc that he is expelled by the teacher. His mother then hires a private tutor, who is led a life of misery due to Huey's efforts to do good that unintentionally backfire. But the tutor winds up in the ocean---unless Huey lived on a shark-invested lake---and and is about to become a shark meal but Huey saves his life...and gets his diploma as a reward from the grateful tutor.

Huey Gets His Diploma!
14 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At school, the kids (little ducks) are seen filing up to the teacher's desk each putting an apple on her desk. Huey comes up and slams a pumpkin (which he thinks is just a big apple) on her desk, which explodes over her face!

When Huey tries to play with the other kids, he's so big and strong that it just doesn't work. He jumps on the teeter-totter and kids go flying off. The teacher finally says she's had enough and writes a note to Huey's mother. It reads, "Your son Huey has been expelled from kindergarten. He is a DOPE! Yours truly, Miss Smythe."

Are you kidding me? Poor Huey's mom is upset, of course, but she immediately hires a tutor for Huey, some guy with a German accent. He vows to turn Huey into a "genius."

Well, what happens after that is pretty amazing. Huey doesn't turn into a genius but he does - in a very round-about way - earn his diploma.
