004 Donald's Lucky Day

Title: Donald's Lucky Day
Studio: Disney
Date: 1/13/39
Credits: (none listed)
Series: Donald Duck(?)
Running time (of viewed version): 8:15

Synopsis: Bombers send their bomb with Donald Duck the bike courier. Donald is luckily waylaid by a black cat. See if you can guess if Disney allowed the bomb to reach its destination...

Comments: Hey, it premiered on Friday the 13th, and it takes place on Friday the 13th. The silhouettes look like Pete and Horace Horsecollar. This is the most structured cartoon storywise so far. It lacks any real menace tho. Warner's would blow up Daffy Duck in this situation. Hitchcock would blow up a little kid. With Disney, there's not much doubt that nothing's going to happen to Donald. Who is way too happy at the beginning, by the way. Maybe to throw his animosity into sharp relief later. The first color cartoon of the year, it has that lush drab look. The cat is possibly the most good natured adult alleycat to ever appear in a cartoon.
