Comments

From Ryan : This is one of my favorite Disney shorts. I enjoyed the part where Donald kept trying to shoe Jenny. The ending, although it can be funny, somewhat makes you feel empathy for poor Donald when he's caught on a vice.
From Baruch Weiss : This Donald Duck cartoon is a good one. I enjoy the scene where he takes one of the wheels and dances in it to a folk dance and Mendelsson's "Spring Song."
