| Got my brother interested in miniatures...
Not one of my favourite Donald Duck/Chip 'n' Dale cartoons of all time, but it is still a great cartoon and one of their most fascinating. I loved the story, structurally it wasn't hugely surprising, but it completely engaged and interested me and it was paced to Disney's usual crisp standard. This was also the cartoon that got my brother interested in miniatures and inventions, and no wonder seeing as both are shown here in a very intriguing way especially the miniatures. The animation is beautiful with all three characters well-drawn and the backgrounds fluid, and the music is suitably jaunty. The sight gags are amusing and Donald and the chipmunks really shine here, especially Donald. All in all, very fascinating and highly recommendable cartoon. 10/10 Bethany Cox
