She'll be coming round the mountain when she comes
18 September 2005 | by CuriosityKilledShawnSee all my reviews

Donald is off on a trek through the wilderness following a railroad track with one of those red polka-dot sacks on a stick (what is the deal with that?). And he's very hungry.

He comes across Pete's shack (big, bad Pete appears to be some kind of railroad worker in this cartoon) and tries to steal some dinner. But Pete catches him and forces Donald to do some lumber-jacking.

It doesn't sound like much of a set-up but there are quite a few laughs and it's as close to a Looney Tunes cartoon as Disney gets. The anarchic animation and gags are all funny for a change with no misses. I think this is due to the fact that in this short Donald's wise-ass attitude doesn't make him do dumb things. He just wants to escape Pete.

Look out for the bit where Donald is blown up with dynamite and tell me how much he looks like Daffy. And am I wrong or has Pete used Donald's bill as an ashtray before?
