Reviews and Comments

From Ryan :

I do not care too much for this short. It gets awfully tiring to see poor Donald being tormented by ants whom he wasn't doing any harm to whatsoever. The ending where his house is destroyed can make one feel sorry for Donald.

From Christian :

Similar to what I mentioned in Test Pilot Donald, I enjoy seeing Donald humorously say, "My vase!" and it is also another one of my favorite Donald quotes.

From Baruch Weiss :

I agree with Ryan that this short can be tiresome seeing poor Donald being tormented by the ants whom he did no harm to whatsoever. However, it was sort of Donald's fault for giving one ant some sugar; he should of known that ants love sugar. Although I do not care much for this cartoon I enjoyed the short scene where the ants turn on the radio and the music from my personal favorite cartoon Two Chips and a Miss is played.
