Comments

From Chris Sinatra : My son and I saw this short while in Disney World last week, and he absolutely loved it. Need to find a copy of it. He would give it a 10.
From Sara : This is one of the few episodes I specifically remember as a child.
From Baruch Weiss : Typical stuff. Donald's only trying to make a living selling nut butter and those two chipmunks have to ruin it for him. In my book this short gets a 2!
From Mike : Contrary to Baruch Weiss's comment this cartoon is really hilarious. One of Chip 'n' Dale's best. The scenes of them trying to break the giant acorn was funny. Also I love when Dale kept going through the assembly line, & gets made into a jar that Chip takes up with him.
