Storyline

Donald is visiting the Grand Canyon as Ranger Woodlore narrates its various attractions. Donald tends to be a thorn in the ranger's side, bothering Native sand painters, borrowing a rain dance outfit heralding the inevitable raincloud, and getting into an argument with his own echo in Echo Canyon. Eventually, Donald loses track of his burro and his search for the lost animal disturbs an irate mountain lion who chases Donald and Woodlore around the landmark ultimately reducing the attraction to a pile of rubble. The ranger, unamused by this, insists that Donald and the lion return the landmark to its original state! Written by Matt Yorston <george.y@ns.sympatico.ca>

[Looks through a guide book]
Ranger Woodlore: The last lion seen in the canyon was during the Civil War. So that couldn't be you. Or could it?

Donald the Insufferable Tourist
8 March 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Donald Duck never has followed orders and this is no exception. He is part of a tour group, and despite warnings, he manages to constantly disobey, causing havoc on the great canyon. It is certainly well done and colorful, showing Mr. Duck to be about as destructive as one can be.
