Donald reminds to be careful of your health.
31 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

In this Disney cartoon short, Donald Duck's got the day off from work and decides to go out and have a game of golf. However, it rains just as he sets foot outside his house and then vents his anger toward nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie. However, that does not sit well with the kids and they plan to give their uncle of taste of his own medicine. Donald sits down with a book, reading a topic about health and hypochondria. Soon, he gets paranoid, giving the nephews the opportunity to trick Donald in thinking there is something physically wrong with him.

This is a funny cartoon from start to finish, especially seeing where Donald gets panicky about his health and his nephews at their trickery best. It reminds you to be careful about your health as well, but not to go overboard. And, it also reminds you to keep you temper and not to let your emotions negatively impact those around you.

Still, this is classic Donald and his nephews at some of their best!
