| One of the better Chip 'n' Dale and Donald Duck cartoons.
In this Disney cartoon, Donald Duck has a miniature scale set of a suburb built in his backyard, with a train set running through the perimeters. Donald takes great lengths to make sure that every structural piece of the model is down to scale. However, there is one thing that is out of scale - a tree (large by the scale set's standards) sitting in the middle of everything and it is the home of Chip 'n' Dale. After Donald moves the tree, the chipmunks find themselves a new home in one of the models.

This cartoon is not the usual Chip 'n' Dale vs. Donald Duck story, as they form more of a mutual relationship, with Donald helping the chipmunks settle into their new home (but Donald does later play tricks on them). But, it's nice to see them at least getting along most of the time and Donald doesn't get the brunt of all the bad luck or gets humiliated a lot in this cartoon short, which is a breath of fresh air.

Some funny moments in and there and one of the better Chip 'n' Dale and Donald Duck cartoons out there.

Grade B+
