Storyline

Donald Duck is ordered to wipe out a Japanese airfield. After parachuting out of an airplane, he lands in a Japanese forest. He uses an inflated canoe to cross the river, but as soon as it fills up with water, Donald is running for his life. He makes sure the canoe hits nothing that would pop it. When he gets to the edge of a cliff, he sees the airfield. The canoe has already exploded, causing water to flow. This large amount of water splashes onto the airfield, wiping the whole thing clean, but leaving disfigured airplanes. Written by Coolguy

Hilarious,worth taping.
26 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

This short is great.Donald as a commando is effective in a way no other Disney character could be.The Japanese have quite a sence of humor.They also have dialogs that cause me to burst in laughter such as in a moment in which one of them sees a shoots the rope from which Donald is hanging he shouts"I did it!Just like the Lone Ranger!".The condition of the airfield in the end is reminding me of Surrealistic paintings.Probably one of Disney's best shorts,
