Disney Pathos: Donald's Dilemma

I wonder why Jack King's work on the Donald Duck series is so reviled. I know many of them aren't very funny, but they're well-drawn and have some really imaginative staging. This short, "Donald's Dilemma" (1947) is no exception, and I think it may be his very best film, not to mention one of the best with the character.

I guess people say how Jack Hannah was superior to King because they just like Chip n' Dale... Yikes.

Emery Hawkins did most of the animation at the beginning with Donald and Daisy walking in the park, and Don getting clobbered by the flowerpot. He may have done more in the short, though I can't say for sure.
