Comments

From Baruch Weiss : This short would have been better being titled "The Chipmunk Who Could Fly" since Dale is shown imitating an airplane and getting behind the wheel! Chip however, would much rather collect nuts instead of going off and tormenting Donald. I enjoyed the final scene where Donald is shown spinning on his airplane and Dale is fascinated this. However, Chip isn't and looks at the audience in disgust!
From Christian : I really enjoy the part from this short where Donald says, "My plane! It's busted!" It's one of my favorite quotes from Donald.
