Storyline

Donald and Goofy rent a sailboat. This boat is a bit unusual: to rent it, you put a nickel in a slot, and the mast and sail pop up. Unfortunately, after a while, they pop back down. When Donald runs out of nickels, they are marooned. Goofy waves his shirt at a passing cruise ship, but they (and he) mistake this for a friendly greeting. A flying fish lands in the boat; while the boys fight over it, a gull grabs it. They try to bash the gull, which lands atop their heads, with predictable results. Finally, as the sharks circle, they try fishing, with Donald as the unwitting bait. He eventually lands back in the boat, where his bill lands in the coin slot and gives them a way home.

Donald and Goofy sails away in this comedy!
22 April 2016 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

This is a hilarious cartoon short where Donald and Goofy are lost at sea, stranded after their nickel-propelled sailboat won't sail because Donald ran out of nickels. As a result, you get to see an unshaven Donald yearning for water and suffering under the hot sun, while Goofy drinks seawater and attempts to fish, without a care in the world.

It's frustrated Donald and clueless Goofy - offering up some great laughs, from Goofy waving to passersby on an ocean liner (without an inkling that they could have saved them from their stranded sailboat) while Donald tries to catch a nickel fallen from Goofy's shirt. Lots of hilarious misadventures follow before they finally got the sailboat working.

A funny cartoon featuring two of Disney's most hilarious characters!
