Comments

From Ryan : I enjoyed this short, but it wasn't really one of my favorites. The scenes where Huey, Dewey, and Louie play tricks on Donald was quite funny. The part where Donald kept going outside only to discover that it was raining got rather tiring for me.
From Eric Irizarry : This cartoon was great, as almost all other Donald Cartoons.
From Baruch Weiss : This is the first cartoon directed by Jack Hannah. I thought that this short was ok. I wonder why Disney decided to get a voice for Donald that is hard for one watching his cartoons to understand.
