Storyline

Donald is leading a scout troop consisting of his nephews on a hike in the woods. Donald isn't nearly the expert on the woods that he thinks he is, much to the amusement of the boys. In a bid for sympathy, he douses himself in catsup and fakes injury; the boys bandage him so thoroughly he can't see, and he stumbles into a pot of honey, and is soon getting all too much attention from a bear.

Goofs

When Huey, Dewey, Louie pushes the round boulder over a cliff to block the geyser, the geyser erupts even bigger sending the rock up to Donald Duck and the Bear jumps on the rock and chases him even when night comes. Both Donald and the grizzly bear would've got tired very quickly due to being covered in fur and feathers and they would've likely fallen off the round boulder rock even before night came.

Following the leader...
12 December 2015 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

Donald takes on a follow-the-leader role as he takes his scout troop - Huey, Duey and Louie - to a hike in the woods.

As bad luck will have it, Donald not-so-expertise in the woods lands him in a hilarious tussle with a bear. His nephews doesn't really help much as they bandage him so thoroughly from a stumble that he can't see bear. Donald takes the brunt of the bad luck.

This cartoon has its funny moments with great animation and colorful characters. But it doesn't show much teamwork between Donald and his nephews. There are better ones featuring Donald and his nephews out there.

Grade C+
