The guest is not always right!
2 April 2016 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

Donald shows in this cartoon short that guests are not always right. Donald is employed as a hotel bellboy and, after being scolded by his manager, was told to improve his personality and to believe that the guest is always right. So, when he attempts to help Pegleg Pete and his son Junior settle into their hotel room, Junior keeps harassing Donald, but Donald endures him as much as he could. When Junior crosses the line, Donald gives him a taste of his own medicine.

Plenty of slapstick humor and entertaining moments. Great animation and not a bad story overall, where Donald gets the last laugh.

Grade B
