Storyline

Donald is heading out for a night on the town with Daisy, but first he needs to ditch his resourceful nephews. Easier said than done. They get to Daisy's house first, but Donald buys them off with ice cream, which works for about 10 seconds. Eventually, Donald and Daisy do some pretty wild dancing, made wilder when the nephews get a hot ear of popcorn into Donald. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

A cleverly done dance number!
18 May 2017 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

Donald Duck is heading out for a date night with Daisy, but he didn't anticipate that his nephews, Huey, Dewey and Louie, will be going along on the date as well. The nephews beat Donald to get to Daisy's house first. Donald sends the kids off to get ice-cream while he and Daisy do some off-the-chart dancing, set to the background of wonderfully jazz and bandstand-type music. It was really clever how the cartoon writers were able to incorporate the music and sound effects into the characters - such as the sounds of drums to popcorn popping.

The popcorn popping in Donald's tummy, causing him to dance wildly with Daisy while the nephews play on instruments is definitely the highlight of the cartoon. There's toe-tapping music and non-stop dancing from start to finish - great fun here!
