This Disneyland episode opens with a drawn portrait of Walt Disney's cartoon family--with "problem child" Donald Duck literally poised to pour cold water on the gang. Nevertheless, host Disney is prepared to present the irascible Duck with an award, if only he can behave himself for a week. The rest of the episode consists of excerpts from Donald's theatrical cartoons, thinly disguised as "testimonials" from his associates Mickey Mouse, Jiminy Cricket, Daisy Duck, Huey, Dewey and Louie, Chip 'n' Dale and even Pluto. Despite their less-than-glowing accounts, Donald still earns the award--but not for long.
