Synopsis

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.

Isn't It Delicious?

A Walt Disney DONALD DUCK Cartoon.

Home kitchen CHEF DONALD is trying to mix up a batch of mouthwatering waffles. Too bad he doesn't know his batter is full of rubber cement...

This is a very funny little film, with watching Donald's expectations of a wonderful breakfast turn to extreme exasperation at the strange behavior of the unruly batter a real joy. Old Mother Mallard is a hilarious spoof of the cooks who broadcast during radio's Golden Age. The legendary Carl Barks was one of the writers on this project; Clarence Nash once again does yeoman service in supplying the voice of the Duck.

Walt Disney (1901-1966) was always intrigued by pictures & drawings. As a lad in Marceline, Missouri, he sketched farm animals on scraps of paper; later, as an ambulance driver in France during the First World War, he drew comic figures on the sides of his vehicle. Back in Kansas City, along with artist Ub Iwerks, Walt developed a primitive animation studio that provided animated commercials and tiny cartoons for the local movie theaters. Always the innovator, his ALICE IN CARTOONLAND series broke ground in placing a live figure in a cartoon universe. Business reversals sent Disney & Iwerks to Hollywood in 1923, where Walt's older brother Roy became his lifelong business manager & counselor. When a mildly successful series with Oswald The Lucky Rabbit was snatched away by the distributor, the character of Mickey Mouse sprung into Walt's imagination, ensuring Disney's immortality. The happy arrival of sound technology made Mickey's screen debut, STEAMBOAT WILLIE (1928), a tremendous audience success with its use of synchronized music. The SILLY SYMPHONIES soon appeared, and Walt's growing crew of marvelously talented animators were quickly conquering new territory with full color, illusions of depth and radical advancements in personality development, an arena in which Walt's genius was unbeatable. Mickey's feisty, naughty behavior had captured millions of fans, but he was soon to be joined by other animated companions: temperamental Donald Duck, intellectually-challenged Goofy and energetic Pluto. All this was in preparation for Walt's grandest dream - feature length animated films. Against a storm of naysayers, Walt persevered and over the next decades delighted children of all ages with the adventures of Snow White, Pinocchio, Dumbo, Bambi & Peter Pan. Walt never forgot that his fortunes were all started by a mouse, or that childlike simplicity of message and lots of hard work always pay off.

Fun with rubber cement.

In this installment of the Donald Duck series, Donald is at home listening to the radio. When the host begins giving a recipe for homemade waffles, Donald follows along...with less than spectacular results. Why? Because instead of adding baking powder, the knucklehead adds rubber cement and all sorts of hilarity results. And, as you'd expect from Donald, this just leaves him angry and searching for someone onto which to vent his anger.

While the plot to this short is simple, it works great for two main reasons. First, the animatio quality is top notch. Second, it's quite funy and manages to make the most of a simple situation. It also didn't hurt that it ended quite well! Worth your time....and currently on Disney+.

Simply delicious

One of my favourite Donald Duck cartoons of all time. The story is simple and a tad predictable, but it is well paced and the simplicity works. Plus the gags are so inventive and so well-timed and the dialogue(ie. Old Mother Mallard's instructions) so effective that any predictability in the story were soon overcome. Donald himself is great, angry and manic which is indeed classic of him but he is very funny too. The animation is colourful and vibrant, and as usual the music has a lot of energy to it. Old Mother Mallard(aptly named) is a hoot too, as is the ending.

Overall, simply delicious, not only is it funny, but it has inspired me to further improve my cooking. 10/10 Bethany Cox
