| Donald enjoys outdoor picnic until the bees show up...
A better than usual DONALD DUCK short, TEA FOR TWO HUNDRED was nominated for a Best Short Subject Oscar back in '48, and it's full of clever plot ideas and good animation.

An army of bees resides near Donald's picnic tent and are soon in evidence when he spots them marching along toward their hives. He decides to play a prank on them and the battle of the bees begins.

They not only invade his picnic basket, but an army of them manage to carry him while he naps and toss him off a high ledge to the water below. He awakens, anxious to get his revenge.

Clever and fast moving, the bees are ingenious and Donald only gets more and more vexation from having to deal with them. His final decision to use dynamite on one of the hives only backfires with him landing in the water again.

Typical Donald cartoon makes clever use of images and Oliver Wallace's native music for the bees is an original touch.
