Goofs

Towards the end of the short, Donald starts to chase the bird with an axe because he pulled apart his hat into a single string. However, in a few shots, we see Donald wearing his hat again despite the fact that the bird is still flying away with the single string in the same shot. Donald's hat disappears again when he manages to start chopping apart the tree. See more »

Heartwarming Donald
5 August 2017 | by VimaconeSee all my reviews

The Disney cartoon shorts lost their innovative edge after the start of WWII. This is especially the case when the Donald Duck shorts became Disney's most popular cartoons. They regrettably fell in the trap of becoming repetitive formulas much like the Tom and Jerry or Looney Tune shorts were. It started right around the time that this short, Wet Paint was released.

Fortunately, this short redeems itself as having a heartwarming ending that some of the best Silly Symphonies in the 30's did. It has a critter inadvertently getting in Donald's way thus causing him to lose his temper and torment it. This case, a bird getting in the way of Donald giving his car a new coat of paint. Donald grows impatient with the bird, Suzie, until he realizes what she is up to.

One of the better Donald vs. critter shorts of this time; Where Donald doesn't get owned in the end.
