Comments

From Ryan : In this short, Donald is a collector of the rare Bootle Beetle. Bootle Beetle tells the story two his grandson of how he almost got caught by Donald Duck. The animation of this short is good and I enjoyed the ending showing an elderly Donald still searching for the beetle.
From Christian : Are you nuts? I love this short! I always get a good laugh at the part at the end where an elderly Donald is still trying to catch the Bootle Beetle.
From Grace : This is the best cartoon ever! It has tons of gags, and I had fun watching this short. Rating 10!
