Cut Scenes

  • A bit of minor editing : there was a scene where Spike picks up a cigar butt and gives it to Donald, who smokes it. This scene was cut and the dialog moved to another scene.


  • In this short, the last of Donald's "bee" cartoons, we finally are given some insight into the circumstances that began the animosity between Donald and Spike, and a delightful sort of catharsis is allowed between the two ex-rivals.

From Dino Cencia :

I'm glad that Donald and Spike the Bee are good friends in this cartoon. Other cartoons with Donald and the bee sometimes fight but then they made up back again. They will never forget the time that they will always be friends. Also, in this cartoon, when Spike the Bee was playing the wallpaper strings for his sweetheart, I heard the song from "Soup's On" when Donald was playing that song when he was an angel up in the sky. That music is really lovely. And I hope that this year for 2008 for the next Walt Disney Treasures, I hope that the Disney company will make The Chronological Donald Volume 4 from the year 1951 through the end of Donald's last cartoon "Donald's Fire Survival Plan." I hope. So anyway, great cartoon of Donald and his nemesis, Spike the Bee. I give it a 949 out of 949.

From Kevin Clark :

When I started 7th grade, I felt really sad because I had a good friend who moved away. But I felt a lot better when my parents gave me a VHS Tape that same year's Christmas that featured this cartoon! In fact, it was actally THIS cartoon on the tape that I liked best, not only because it made me think of the good times my friend and I had together, but also because I enjoyed the story of Donald Duck's/Spike the Bee's friendship! I like how it starts/ends, and I also like the overall cartoon's good ending!

From Baruch Weiss :

This is a great cartoon within a cartoon. An elderly Spike (Played by Bill Thompson who was a very popular voice actor at Disney, but best remembered for the voice of Droopy) recalls how he & Donald met and became business partners until the bee ditches the Duck for a female bee. It's a nice departure from the standard formula where Donald & the bee constantly fight usually because Donald, being the jerk that he sometimes is, starts the trouble. I find it humorous when Spike & Donald are at the amusement park & as donald gives the balloons to the kids spike pops each one. Then, he goes inside a balloon dance & pops all the ballon's on the lady causing him and donald to get fired, for obvious reasons!
