Comments

From Ryan : While on a vacation in the Everglades, Donald tricks his nephews into believing that he had drank from the Fountain of Youth. I do find this cartoon to be quite humorous, especially the ending where the alligator quacks in order for her babies to tell that she is their mother. I do enjoy the background art in this cartoon as well.
From Baruch Weiss : If Donald's nephews eyes were glued to a comic book, Donald should have just taken them home.
