Reviews and Comments

From Ryan :

Here is another Donald vs. the bee short. I find most of it funny, but at the end when the bees are swarming into the house, it kind of makes me feel sorry for Donald.

From Dino Cencia :

It's too bad that Donald is up on the ceiling with his hands stuck to the wallpaper and he can't down, and the bee tries to sting Donald but he can't so he whistles his bee friends to come to the house and sting Donald one by one. I feel sorry for Donald getting stung by lots of bees, but I hope that after the ending of the cartoon, I hope he does get down from the ceiling after the bees sting him, but just like people say: "it's just a cartoon." I give this a 834 out of 834.

From Baruch Weiss :

I used to own this cartoon along with 6 other Donald cartoons on a video titled "Donald's Bee Pictures", but I gave it away last year to my neighbors. Donald certainly deserved getting stung after teasing that bee!

From Abigail Watson :

I think this cartoon is one of the best of the best. I love the part where Spike whistles, and his bee friends come out of the hive in the form of a question mark! It's really cool!
