Donald vs. the "timber pirates"
14 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

If you are a fan of Donald Duck you will have a great time with Old Sequoia. It is a beautiful-looking and fun Disney short that manages to have a familiar concept but does something unique with it. Technically, Old Sequoia is faultless, with colourful, beautifully-detailed traditional animation that doesn't date the short a bit. The music has always been a key part to the success of the Disney shorts I feel, and with the characterful and attractively orchestrated scoring it certainly doesn't disappoint here. The story is simple, but not simplistic, predictable or routine and it plays to Donald's strengths. The gags are equally terrific, the ringing phone, Donald trying to put all the sawdust back in the tree before it exploded and Donald underwater and literally cracking after being fired were the best parts. Donald is perfect here, you don't see his frustration as often as you did previously and since- though it is not at all absent- but that approach does work here, sometimes when used before it didn't quite. The beavers are good foils, energetic yet antagonistic, kind of like Chip and Dale but perhaps more tolerable to some. In conclusion, wonderful and I have no hesitation recommending it. 10/10 Bethany Cox
