Storyline

Chip and Dale come across Donald's house trailer. They amuse themselves by jumping on his car horn, which wakes up Donald, who chases them off. Donald heads for the swimming hole, but Chip and Dale mess with the diving board and send him crashing into his trailer. Next, they bomb Donald with pine-cones through the hole in his roof. Donald goes after them, but ends up wrecking his car. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Goofs

When Chip and Dale pushes the pine cones over the hole in Donald's trailer they break his teacup, they push the rest of the pine cones and breaks more plates and hits his head twice. The pine cones in real life are very light and would not be heavy or strong enough to break Donald's cup or dishes. Chip and Dale would've been better off rolling heavy rocks and dropping rocks on Donald's dishes as they would be heavy enough to do damage to break his cup and plates and hurt Donald Ducks head.

A Donald Duck/Chip 'n' Dale classic
20 March 2012 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I happen to like the Donald Duck/Chip 'n' Dale cartoons. True, they are routine and predictable somewhat in the stories, but I find them so cute and funny I don't mind so much. Trailer Horn is one of my favourites of theirs alongside All in a Nutshell, Working for Peanuts and Corn Chips. I also like Gold Nut Donald, Chips Ahoy and Toy Tinkers just as much. The animation is colourful and fluid, not the most beautiful-looking cartoon of theirs, but still looks great, and the music has a lot of energy and lush orchestration. Trailer Horn has its fair shares of cute and funny moments, I liked the bit where the chipmunks were bouncing on the car horn while Donald was trying to sleep, but the best part was the last minute or so of the cartoon, which is a riot. Donald is great, I love his cantankerous personality and facial expressions, and Chip 'n' Dale are an ideal match for him, sweet, funny and a little antagonistic. Is it me though, or did anyone else find Chip cuter than Dale in Trailer Horn? Dale is usually the funnier of the two, while Chip is very no-nonsense, but here Chip is quite adorable in the first minute and a half of Trailer Horn. All in all, a classic and one of the better cartoons of the Donald/Chip 'n' Dale series. 10/10 Bethany Cox
