From Ryan :

This is definitely one of my favorite Donald Duck shorts. It shows that Donald, even though being wimpy compared to Pee Wee Pete, can triumph over him. All he needed to do was discover his pressure point-- that being his chin.

From Baruch Weiss :

This is the only Disney cartoon where Jack Kinney did the story. It was usually his brother, Dick, who did the stories for the shorts. I enjoyed this cartoon, but it isn't one of my favorites. However, it's the only one where Donald's nephews are on his side and Donald gets the upper hand which is good. I myself enjoy seeing Donald win once in a while.

From Bryan Hensley :

This 1953 short started off Volume 2 of Disney's Funny Factory collection on Disney DVD. (Which starred Donald). Just when you think Donald is a champ at any circus or fair game he got his hands and feet on, he thought twice about Pee-wee Pete being tiny. He was pretty tall and plump! It's amazing Huey, Dewey, and Louie fought by their uncle's side for a change, instead of giving him heck! It turns out Pete's weak spot was his chin, which broke his "glass jaw"! Donald ended up with a black eye when the fighting ended, but that didn't stop him from being and feeling victorious! (After winning $500 at the end!)After Donald fed some popcorn to some birds, he punched the bag and it hurt him! He must've been badly bruised after Pete fell into the canvas! Sometimes, things aren't always as they appear. The nephews thought the "sissy boy" was a sissy, until they found out about him being a smoking dog and Pee-wee Pete being a powerhouse of destruction! I hope you enjoy this boxing match that no one could possibly live through in real life!
