Comments

From Trae Robinson : This is the funniest Donald/Goofy cartoon ever. Donald Duck has theme music in this cartoon, but it doesn't have those singers. The ending is funny when the goat kicks Donald and Goofy on the windmill and carnival music plays.
From Baruch Weiss : This short is the first DD cartoon to use his first theme song and it would be used from this cartoon until the 1947 short Sleepy Time Donald. This short is okay and I enjoyed the scene where a bucket of paint falls off from Goofy's head and it makes him look like and elephant. Music mavens will recognize the song that Donald and Goofy sing as they perform their task. Here's a hint, it was three years before this cartoon was made.
From Matthew Cooper : This is the best cartoon teeming up Donald and Goofy that I've ever seen! The music is great (especially Donald and Goofy whistling "Whistle While You Work" from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.) I also like the gags but my ultimate favorite is the one with the goat eating the posters and that is a joke because the goat was eating the posters because they showed tin cans. Great short, 100%!
