The grass is greener on the other side.
22 February 2016 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

This is a Donald Duck cartoon where a young beetle spots Donald's beautiful house and yard through his home in an old can. He yearns for the delicious fruit that grow in his garden over the beans that his father gave him, but his father tells him of a time when he went into Donald's backyard when he was younger.

The old beetle back then had eaten some of Donald's corn, watermelon and grapes in his garden, angering Donald and narrowly escapes with Donald, his chickens and birds in pursuit. What resulted was some funny slapstick comedy when Donald runs into a wall and when a hen slaps Donald because he accidentally stomped on its leg. Donald as usual gets the bad luck, but it's overall not a bad cartoon - it reminds you of the simple things in life and that the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.

Grade B-
