Another in a long string of "bee" films from Disney...
Donald Duck suffers the usual indignities of having to be on guard from bee attack in BEE ON GUARD, an amusing entry in the Donald Duck cartoons of the '40s and '50s.
The bees are on a mission led by a King Bee and decide to land in Donald Duck's garden while he's there doing his gardening chores. Donald knows where the hive is, guarded by a funny looking bee who asks each entrant for a password. Donald is rebuked when he tries to gain entry and comes up with the foolish notion of disguising himself as a bee so the dumb guard will talk to him while he plans to steal the honey.
The dumb guard has a voice like "Gus-Gus" from "Cinderella". He falls asleep after Donald has managed to siphon all the honey from the hives while having chit-chat with him. The bees return, led by the King Bee, and are angry to find the hive emptied. The bee guard is given his walking papers.
Fortunately, he traces the theft to Donald's house, gets the goods on Donald and heads back to be treated like a hero by his fellow bees.
It's amusing enough, but lacks the style of the early bee pictures with "Buzz-Buzz" as his main enemy. Animation is up to the usual Disney standard.
