Storyline

Donald cheerfully sets up his umbrella etcetera for a day at the beach, but so did a mischievously lazy bee, who doesn't accept his actions inadvertently mess up the bee's spot. Once Donald is in the water in an inflatable raft, the irate insect uses its angle to sting not the duck, but the dingy, more often then Donald has fingers and toes to stuff in the holes, next makes sure to attract the 'gastronomical' attention of a whole band of sharks: duck hunting season at sea is open. Donald uses all the resourcefulness of desperation, and his only weapon, the beach umbrella... Written by KGF Vissers

Irritating, annoying bee!
31 July 2017 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

The irritating and annoying bee fights for a spot at the beach with Donald Duck, whom actually took the last spot first. However, the two engage in a war where Donald appeared to get the open-hand at first, but unfortunately, he couldn't escape his bad luck-prone reputation and almost gets the best out of by hungry sharks thanks to the bee.

A predictable cartoon with the annoying bee getting the last laugh - would have really loved to see Donald take a swat at him at the end.

Grade D--
