Quotes

Narrator: The worst was yet to come. Friendless, jobless and foodless, Donald was down and out. He'd lost his fine feathered nest and was forced to move into a cheap rental. Now the superstar would have to get a real job like the rest of us.

Really interesting "duckumentary" done in the style of "60 minutes"
15 May 2010 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I admit before two days ago I knew nothing about Down and Out with Donald Duck, until I saw it by chance on YouTube. And I found it very interesting, done as a "duckumentary" done in the style of "60 minutes" it is an affectionate tribute to everyone's favourite cantankerous quack. The animation is very good, lively, bright and colourful, and the music is excellent. And so is the witty script, and the inspired plot, where as Donald rises to fame so does his ego, and after having bizarre dreams after having therapy(involving Professor Von Drake and his insult machine) he vows to reform. Stan Freberg does a stellar job as the narrator, and Tony Anselmo is fine as Donald, with Clarence Nash even better in the archive footage. I for one found Mickey's voice here distracting, but everyone else is fine. What made Down and Out with Donald Duck though was the archive footage. What a delight to see Magician Mickey, Moving Day, Donald's Nephews and Donald in Mathmagic Land all but to name a few. Overall, if you love Donald, this is likely to be a real treat. 9/10 Bethany Cox
