From Ad : I recently saw this short on the Disney channel in the U.K with a small cut in the soundtrack. Dale just said "it's a duck" without saying "with a big fanny". This cut was probably made because in the U.K "fanny" is a slang term for a certain part of a lady's anatomy.
From Dan : In terms of spectacular action and funny gags this short should rank as one of Disney's most entertaining ones as it is very fast moving and undoubtedly funny. However, I have always thought of the ending of this short as extremely cruel. Chip an Dale have always had the tendency to be unappealing because of their cruelty. The ending disturbed me when I saw this short as a small child and I still find the cruelty in its dark humor repelling.
From Baruch Weiss : I own this cartoon along with 6 others on videocassette on the first volume of "Cartoon Classics" released in the early 1980's. I mentioned in a previous comment that I'm not crazy for them except for the last one Out of Scale, but this one wasn't too bad, but the end where both chipmunks stand on Donald's shoulder and say "Aw that's to bad, we're so sorry" (rather then their old dialogue like "He's a big baboon of an ape come on and take a look" "Oh boy I sure took care of him and was his face red", etc.) after his house was destroyed was really cruel. Poor Donald, the most popular character in the Disney canon hardly wins the day unlike Bugs Bunny who usually wins the day!
From J. P. Hope : That's Donald! Always falling out of trees! I especially like it when the fallen tree sends Donald's house flying and Donald's house explodes, much to Donald's sadness.
From Trae Robinson : This cartoon was featured in a episode of "House of Mouse" about Chip and Dale in full screen.
