When the gopher eats all of the vegetables in Donald's garden. It wouldn't have been possible for the gopher to overeat all of the vegetables as it would've made him sick and throw up the food. It's possible that he had his gopher friends eat Donald's vegetables. But's it's unknown if his gopher friends invaded the garden underground or just pulled the vegetables underground to save for later. See more »

Donald Duck: Quack!
[Donald Duck pulls the watermelon but gets pulled in the hole in the ground. Donald gets out only to get tied down by watermelon vines by the gopher until Donald is helplessly tied down to the ground. The gopher points to Donald at the garden]

I've seen better from Donald, but this cartoon was cute
3 April 2012 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I love Disney and the character of Donald Duck. Donald's Garden is a pleasant cartoon, if one that doesn't hold that many surprises. However, the story is very cute and moves briskly with enough amusing moments to satisfy. Donald is wonderfully temperamental, a personality that contrasts well with the adorable gopher. The animation is beautiful with a lot of vibrancy in the colours and fluidity in the background art. The music is bouncy and energetic as is always the case with the Disney(and Looney Tunes as well as a matter of fact) cartoons, and Clarence Nash voices Donald as ever impeccably.

Overall, cute and amusing if unexceptional. 8/10 Bethany Cox
