| Nice, nothing more
'Lighthouse Keeping' stars Donald Duck as a... lighthouse keeper. He is trying to read but the light in the lighthouse is spinning around so that plan does not really work out. To fill his time he starts annoying an pelican by shining the light on the animal. Of course the pelican is not happy and he tries to turn off the light. The battle between Donald and the pelican has started.

This average Disney cartoon has some nice moments but it is not that great. It is watchable and worth watching once. The music is something that makes the cartoon better; it fits the action perfectly. The ending is good as well, better than the cartoon deserves.
