Buzz-Buzz uses his stinger on Donald...
30 March 2008 | by DoylenfSee all my reviews

Among a series of "bee" pictures starring Donald Duck, antagonized by a bee who likes to use his stinger, Walt Disney gets a lot of chuckles out of INFERIOR DECORATOR, with Donald unwittingly putting up wallpaper with a floral design that attracts the busy little bee.

Full of energetic antics from Donald and the bee, these "B" pictures delighted Donald's fans and Buzz-Buzz was used in many a Donald film short.

Here Donald gets tangled up in the wallpaper while attempting to thwart the bee's attack mode, but manages to get out of a sticky situation by letting the bee get his stinger into a cork. The bee isn't through and signals a swarm of bees to launch an attack on poor Donald.

Fortunately, the short closes before we see the final attack. A typically amusing Donald Duck cartoon where all his good intentions end in frustration.
