Comments

From Jerry Edwards : One of the Donald/Nephews shorts that I very strongly dislike. I find nothing funny or pleasing about this short.
From Ryan : This short wasn't too bad, but I wouldn't call it one of my favorites either. Although the "grasshopper in the golf ball" gag is funny at first, it does get to be tiring after awhile and you can't help but feel empathy for Donald's frustration.
From Baruch Weiss : The only part I find funny about this short was when grass got in Donald's mouth and it looked like he was an old duck.
From Bo Engwall : Although I, like many others, prefer the wonderful Mickey/Goofy/Donald shorts from about 1937-1938, it is interesting to see how my favorite comic book artist Carl Barks reused many of the themes from the early Donald Duck cartoons he worked on, in his more famous comic book 10-pagers of Donald Duck for WDC&S. Obviously Carl Barks would come better off in the latter case, using his skills of both art work and storytelling.
