Well, that gave meaning to the word short didn't it?

And I don't mean this at all in a bad way. Perhaps it is a little too short, even by short standards, but I still found it a very nice short indeed. The animation is really beautifully drawn and coloured, and the music adds to any humour or emotional moments without feeling out of place or feeling false. The gags are not plentiful or groundbreaking, but they are fun, which in regard to gags is more important to me, while the story moves briskly and has heart and charm, though you are left wishing for more at the end. The Volunteer Worker has a very meaningful message that anybody can relate to, and it manages to do in a way that doesn't come across as heavy-handed. Donald is a very pleasant surprise. He is playing against his usual characteristics here, playing kind and gentle instead of getting easily frustrated and temperamental in situations(Mickey is more the sort of character that I'd associate the former with). But that said, Donald does do it very well, and it was nice to see a different side to him. In conclusion, a very short Disney short but a more than worthwhile one. 9/10 Bethany Cox
