105 Donald's Penguin

Title: Donald's Penguin
Studio: Disney
Date: 8/11/39
Credits: None listed on print
Series: Donald Duck
Running time (of viewed version): 7:46 (ignoring Leonard)

Synopsis: Donald gets some foreign action sent his way in the form of a troubled penguin.

Comments: Leonard Maltin is forced to say guns are bad. Nice stencil title; the N would be unidentifiable without the context of other letters around it; I like it. I'm not sure if the ice around the penguin is meant to seem like Snow White's glass coffin. When you send a penguin to a duck, are you engaged in the flesh trade? With such angry girlish eyes, it's like some sort of mail order bride situation (and her name is Tootsie; one of the fairies in the last entry, Jitterbug Knights, was also named Toots). This gives the spanking scene a different context. Multiple fish shadow shots. Donald gets his fingers caught in a trap, and then they throb. Shoot that penguin execution style with a shotgun, Donald. Donald sniffs her, wolf whistles and says "It smells like a bird".
