Donald is courting Daisy (called Donna, here in her first appearance) Duck in Mexico. He arrives on a burro, which doesn't get along at all well with her; she convinces him to buy a car. They head through the desert, but the car breaks down, and throws Donald out, then takes off on its own with Daisy trapped inside the rumble seat. The car hits a rock, throwing Daisy into a mud puddle, to Donald's excessive amusement. Daisy pulls a unicycle from her purse, and rides off.Written by

This is the first 1937 Donald Duck cartoon "Don Donald" to have Donald Duck getting mad at Jenny the donkey calling it a jackass. The second time he would call Jenny the donkey a jackass is in the 1942 Donald Duck cartoon "The Village Smithy". It would remain uncensored even during the 1983-2001 Disney Channel classic cartoon era. On the VHS tape "Starring Donald and Daisy." and on the "Walt Disney Treasures DVD The Chronological Donald Volume 1." See more »
Donald plays some sort of traveling Banjo player who comes into (an apparently Mexican) town on a pitiful, lazy, dying Donkey and tries to serenade the lovely Daisy Duck (called Donna in this short). She's not too impressed with his wooing skills and quickly becomes bored with him.
Desperate not to lose her attention Donald trades his worthless mule in for a car (these were new-ish creations back in the 30s). Daisy is interested once more and they go out for a ride.
Well, Donald is no boy racer that's for sure. Following Daisy's orders, Donald pushes the car to its limit on the rough desert terrain and it's not belong before it falls apart and fights back against its enraged owner.
Another perfect example of the highly irritable duck being pushed to the point of a nervous-breakdown. Which, when you think about it, is quite cruel entertainment.
