Comments

From Ryan : This is one of my favorite Donald Duck shorts. A bee wants to listen to classical music on Donald's radio, but Donald later comes out into his backyard and turns it to a baseball game. It can be funny seeing the bee's reactions toward the interruptions made by Donald. I find the scene at the end where Donald is trapped in his shower to be funny, but I also feel sorry for Donald at the same time. Aside from the comedy of this short, this short has wonderful background art.
From Dino Cencia : A great Donald Duck cartoon. Donald wants to hear the baseball game on the radio, but the bee wants to hear music. My favorite part is when Donald was playing baseball in his backyard and as he coming on to home plate and he slides, the bee stung him and he was out and the game is over and so the bee tells him to go to the shower. The bee locks him in and Donald can't out and I feel sorry for Donald trapped in the shower. I hope somebody comes over his house and lets him out.
From Baruch Weiss : I loved this cartoon because of the music, but I felt bad for poor Donald when he got locked in the shower!
From Mike : This is Donald's funniest cartoon. The cartoons with him & Spike the bee are always hilarious. I like the scene when he sets out the fake radio with the dynamite in it, and when Spike plays the umpire role. True genius.
