RELEASE DATE: Friday 5th November 1948

SYNOPSIS: Donald Duck is making pancakes. Yum yum yum. Unfortunately for him, two other little critters seem very keen on eating his pancakes as well: Chip and Dale. Who will end up the victor, the temper-prone duck or the cheeky chipmunks?

SHENZI: I never thought I'd say that there's someone less understandable than Donald Duck, but Chip and Dale win the prize!

ANNA: My favourite bit was when they saw the pancakes and the look of hunger on their face.

IRVYNE: Disney's early-day racism rears its ugly head again at the end of this cartoon. I suppose you just have to understand that America in the 1940s was very different to what it is now. It was not multicultural, and it was just considered acceptable to make fun of other races. But anyway, this is a great cartoon. It's very funny and the jokes come in thick and fast.

SHENZI: Yeah, they're very clever.

IRVYNE: Chip and Dale make great nemeses for Donald.
