Decent Donald Short
Donald's Penguin (1939)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Donald receives a package, which happens to be a penguin named Tootsie. Soon Donald is trying to teach him a few things but when he thinks the penguin has eaten his goldfish things turn bad.

DONALD'S PENGUIN isn't the greatest Disney short ever produced and it's not even one of the best from the Donald series. If you're a fan of Donald then I'm sure you'll still want to check it out but there's really nothing too special on display here. The highlight is certainly Donald's reaction to thinking his goldfish have been eaten. As you'd expect the animation itself is quite good but there just aren't enough laughs or action to keep the film more entertaining.
