Who's your friend?
This Disney short is most likely sitting in a film vault somewhere
collecting dust. It's a shame that many of the delightfully silly cartoons
use to watch as a child can only be found on the Disney Channel very late
night, if then. This one in particular reminds me of throwing applecores at
my siblings under the influence of Chip and Dale's absurd "Applecore, Want
Some More" confrontation with Donald Duck..
A Duck Tale With Apples
A Walt Disney DONALD DUCK Cartoon.
Donald\'s Delicious Apples is a thriving enterprise until Chip
Dale begin to eat a large percentage of the produce.
DONALD APPLECORE is a fairly routine little Duck versus
Chipmunks film - humorous, but all these characters have
this road before. The title refers to a rowdy old children\'s
Clarence "Ducky" Nash provides Donald with his unique voice.
Walt Disney (1901-1966) was always intrigued by drawings. As
lad in Marceline, Missouri, he sketched farm animals on scraps
paper; later, as an ambulance driver in France during the
World War, he drew figures on the sides of his vehicle. Back
Kansas City, along with artist Ub Iwerks, Walt developed
primitive animation studio that provided animated commercials
and tiny cartoons for the local movie theaters. Always
innovator, his ALICE IN CARTOONLAND series broke ground
placing a live figure in a cartoon universe. Business reversals
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
Mouse sprung into Walt\'s imagination, ensuring Disney\'s
immortality. The happy arrival of sound technology made
screen debut, STEAMBOAT WILLIE (1928), a tremendous
audience success with its use of synchronized music. The
SYMPHONIES soon appeared, and Walt\'s growing crew of
marvelously talented animators were quickly conquering
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
had captured millions of fans, but he was soon to be joined
other animated companions: temperamental Donald Duck,
intellectually-challenged Goofy and energetic Pluto. All this was
preparation for Walt\'s grandest dream - feature length
films. Against a blizzard of doomsayers, Walt persevered and
the next decades delighted children of all ages with the
adventures of Snow White, Pinocchio, Dumbo, Bambi & Peter
Walt never forgot that his fortunes were all started by a mouse,
that simplicity of message and lots of hard work always pay
