Donald is pruning Chip 'n' Dale's tree home. He doesn't want to chase them away like he usually does; just to have some fun with them which, of course, backfires.

From Dino Cencia :

Another great cartoon of Donald vs. Chip and Dale. My favorite part is when Donald was chasing the chipmunks up in the tree and Donald uses a lawn motor to cut the leaves to find Chip and Dale. And they open the tree leaves and Donald goes on a high voltage wire! I also feel sorry for Donald being electrocuted and falling down. Then the chipmunks put tar on Donald covered with leaves looking like a green monster. This one of my favorites, and I enjoyed it. I give it a 840 out of 840.

From Bryan Hensley :

At the beginning of this short, you can hear Donald whistling the tune of "Crazy Over Daisy" earlier in 1950. Why would you put stretchy tar on a cut tree branch? Anyway, that's what caused Chip 'n' Dale to get really sticky. Donald's pruner looked like a monster to them, until they found out who was operating it! Never use a lawn mower in a tree; you might get zapped by high-voltage power lines! Thankfully, Chip 'n' Dale got rid of Donald by pouring a tar bucket on him and some leaves, making him look like a silly monster! When the short ended, they still had tar in their hands! That reminds me of what happened to SpongeBob and his friends when they caught Ick one time. (That's a real disease fish get.) I hope you enjoy this pruning job gone all to pieces, that only Donald Duck, Chip 'n' Dale would make!
