Storyline

Donald is listening to a radio cooking program and mixes up a batch of waffles, but he's distracted and uses rubber cement instead of baking powder. The batter proves to be unusually stiff... His spoon gets stuck, and the batter acts like a rubber-band airplane, flying the bowl around the room. Next, Donald gets his head stuck into the batter (and his tail in the waffle iron). He tries to chop it with an ax; the ax flies up and splits the room in half. He throws the bowl out the door; it sticks to the knob and finds its way back in.

Simply delicious
28 March 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

One of my favourite Donald Duck cartoons of all time. The story is simple and a tad predictable, but it is well paced and the simplicity works. Plus the gags are so inventive and so well-timed and the dialogue(ie. Old Mother Mallard's instructions) so effective that any predictability in the story were soon overcome. Donald himself is great, angry and manic which is indeed classic of him but he is very funny too. The animation is colourful and vibrant, and as usual the music has a lot of energy to it. Old Mother Mallard(aptly named) is a hoot too, as is the ending.

Overall, simply delicious, not only is it funny, but it has inspired me to further improve my cooking. 10/10 Bethany Cox
