She picks herself, and drops another flowerpot, which restores him. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Donald and Daisy both shine!
20 April 2012 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I do agree that the title is misleading, it is more Daisy's Dilemma than Donald's. But when you see the quality of the cartoon, you can forgive this, because Donald's Dilemma is just wonderful. It is a cartoon where both Donald and Daisy shine, Donald is not as temperamental as he is in other cartoons but he is still a joy here. Especially with his singing which is one of the more mellow and beautiful singing voices of any male singing voice in the Disney cartoons. The animation is of vibrant and fluid quality, and there is a lot of energy and style in the music. The cartoon is both touching and amusing, touching because while I have rarely seen Daisy so angry you do to an extent feel for her and amusing because the part where Donald gets the pot crashed upon his head cracks me up every time. The story is structured beautifully and characterised so affectionately. The voice acting is as good as you'd expect too. Overall, a wonderful cartoon where Donald and Daisy both shine. 10/10 Bethany Cox
