Trivia

Not as funny as Caddyshack
22 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

In this cartoon Donald is out on a coastal golf course for a relaxing eighteen as his nephews caddie for him. Everything would have worked out fine if he were not so bossy. Huey, Duey and Louie play tricks on him to throw him (such as swapping his clubs for nets and giving him phony balls) off his game. And that's about as creative as the cartoon gets.

Donald Duck cartoons are so easy to set up and seem to spend the entire eight minutes knocking down. You can tell that whatever Donald is involved in is going to end up in disaster but sometimes it can be quite inventive. This one just seems to be going through the motions. Why can't he and his nephew cooperate for a change?
