The best of the four Canadian war shorts
20 January 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Disney and Donald Duck are a perfect match with the numerous Disney shorts of the late 20s-early 60s. Among these numerous shorts are the four Canadian war bonds shorts, and Donald's Decision is the third of those. And I'd also say it's the best as well. The main reason why these were made were to show some kind of true conflicted feelings towards people, here the situation between saving and keeping the money to themselves and donating it. With the conflict thing, it's in Donald's Decision where it's communicated the best, with the angel and devil- made up to look like a Nazi- idea it makes for good entertainment while getting its point across without preaching. The story is somewhat derivative of Self Control and Donald's Better Self, but with those and on its own it still manages to make sense and it always engaged me. The animation is beautifully coloured and detailed, and the music is rousing and also energetic. There are Disney shorts that play to Donald's personality better than here, but he is one of those characters who is always a pleasure to see and always is a lot of fun. All in all, excellent and of the Canadian war bond shorts it is Donald's Decision that I recommend the highest. 9/10 Bethany Cox
