Dream on, Donald!
23 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

Donald Duck attempts to sell brushes door to door, but because nobody understands his voice, rebukes him. This results in some funny slapstick moments, especially the part where a woman slaps poor Donald after she thought he was mouthing her off. As a result, Donald bought some "voice pills," which turned his quacky voice in a suave one. So, Donald was able to sell enough brushes to use the money to buy Daisy an engagement ring. But, as with bad-luck-prone Donald, things sometimes doesn't go according to plan. However, it's a fun cartoon to see and Donald does bask in some good moments once in a while. The parts where his suave voice suddenly reverts back to his old voice are funny, as is the part where he disguises as a woman to fool a gruff man.
