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.

Kitchen Chaos
14 October 2005 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

In this cartoon Donald tries his hand at some baking. A radio cookery show is own and the female host is instructing listeners on how to make their very own waffles covered in butter and maple syrup. Feeling hungry, Donald decides to join in. And he does well enough until, in a moment of distraction, he adds rubber cement to the mix instead of baking powder.

Now he's created some kind of flubber substance with enough elasticity to cause no end of havoc in the kitchen. The gags are mostly quite simple but there's enough invention in some of the havoc to make it an above average Donald cartoon.
