| Donald with a conscience...
Donald's Crime is a great cartoon. If there was anything that I felt could have been done better was that I didn't really buy the scene where he repays his nephews, it was something that he easily could have done in the first place. That aside, the animation is wonderful, especially in the scene where Donald imagines himself as a criminal, it has lots of colour and atmosphere with the backgrounds detailed and the character designs expressive. The music is jazzy and very upbeat. There may be funnier Donald shorts around, but few that are as interesting in story. The story here has a lot of suspense in the scenes where Donald feels guilt, and Donald's inner thoughts shown as reality as a playboy, gangster, big shot and prisoner was very intriguingly done. Donald is different to the character we are used to, usually he is one who is easily frustrated and has a bad temper, here he is shown as dishonest but after feels the guilt and is more sympathetic. It was a nice idea to do something different from normal and it meant that we could really identify with Donald. Daisy and Donald's nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie are on great form too, but it is Donald's cartoon and he carries it wonderfully, helped also from Clarence Nash's ever impeccable voice work. All in all, great. 9/10 Bethany Cox
