The Clock Watcher
Well, over the years, we have watched many old Disney cartoons. Some of the family favorites have been the Donald Duck cartoons, those starring Humphrey (the bear), and many of the Goofy shorts.
The other night, I caught an old Donald Duck one, called “The Clock Watcher,” on. I remembered it all right, but there was a clip in that I did not remember.
I just laughed out loud when I first saw that, and to be honest, I have a hard time keeping quiet when watching it again, some 20 times later. I just find that so hilarious. The voice commands Donald to apologize, and he makes a pretty convincing apology. But immediately after that, Donald just makes this face, where he’s sticking out his tongue and rolling his eyes at the speaker.
It’s just so funny how instantly defiant Donald is, and I think the animation was just done perfectly. It’s so extreme, so over-the-top. He’s so rebellious. I love how Donald’s eyes seem to scroll as he’s rolling them.
Anyway, I don’t often just “LOL” at a cartoon, but this one just really got me. It’s just so darn funny! I can’t get over it.
These old Disney cartoons are the best. I have never been a huge fan of the ones starring Mickey Mouse, but the Donald Duck ones tend to be so funny, so clever. I think someday, when I have more time, I’ll just spend some time on YouTube, finding old favorite cartoons.
So without further ado, watch this cartoon. Or to seek directly to the location, go to the 4:00 mark in the video, and you’ll quickly see what I mean. Enjoy!
