Reviews and Comments

From Steve Carras :

Excellently done.You forgot to mention that Thurl Ravenscroft and his Mellow Men singing group are on the cartoon (and of course starring Clarence Ducky Nash as Donald).

Shows the many uses for a wheel and therefore why we all need wheels in our lives.Even Donald. He's shown as a caveman in this one.


From Baruch Weiss :

There was one song that I liked in it called "The Principal of the thing".
