Our first Disney-centric episode is sure to ruffle feathers as we discuss the studio's superstar Donald Duck and the animators and storymen behind him. We discuss what makes some versions of the Duck better than others (namely the legendary writer-cartoonist Carl Barks) and, in spite of our reservations, our favorite Dolan moments. And our first negative critical dissection of 1941's Timber, written by the dynamic duo Barks and Jack Hannah and directed by the not-so-dynamic Jack King.

Cartoons discussed: The Wise Little Hen, The Band Concert, Don Donald, Billposters, Fire Chief, Chef Donald, Donald's Double Trouble, Clown of the Jungle, Soup's On, Donald's Happy Birthday, Dude Duck, Rugged Bear, Beezy Bear, and Timber.
