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. Written by Jon Reeves <>

It's only laughing
30 July 2009 | by (The world of artists) – See all my reviews

This is one the Donald Duck's cartoons which I have very fond memories from childhood. At the time, it was one of the cartoons I used to watch with more frequency. This is a great cartoon. It's very simple and predictable yet lacks in nothing. It does its duty quite well: to make people laugh and amuse them.

This is one of Donald's most hilarious cartoons. It is hysterical! Donald gets mad all the time, which is classic him. He listens to a radio cooking program while mixing up a batch of waffles. However, he ends up using rubber cement instead of baking powder in a moment of distraction, but he never realizes why is it going all wrong for him.

The funniest and craziest things happen to the duck and at the end, when they ask over the radio if he enjoyed his recipe and wished to hear about it, Donald runs to the radio station and... well, what happens is hysterical. We hear Donald getting mad and the radio shakes over and over.
