Crazy Over Daisy is an animated short starring Donald Duck, Chip 'n' Dale, and Daisy Duck. It was produced in 1949 and released in 1950.

Synopsis[]

Donald's quiet bicycle ride to see Daisy is interrupted by Chip 'n' Dale.

Plot[]

In the 1890s, Donald Duck is riding his penny-farthing bicycle, humming a love tune (which was the theme song "Crazy Over Daisy") and on his way to Daisy Duck. He passes and waves to townspeople, including Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse and Goofy. Chip 'n' Dale find Donald's look and mannerisms amusing, and proceed to mock and antagonize him. Donald initially shoos them up into a nearby tree, but they continue their mockery of him along a tree branch. The feud escalates until Chip 'n' Dale ultimately destroy Donald's bicycle with a cannon ball.

Drenched from landing in a fountain and enraged at his destroyed bicycle, Donald chases and ultimately catches the chipmunks. He drags them into his workshop, where he hastily assembles a new bicycle. This new model includes wheels wide enough to serve as treadmills, in which he traps the chipmunks to power the bike. He rides his new chipmunk powered bike to Daisy Duck's house.

Donald stands on Daisy's sidewalk expecting her to kiss him in greeting, but is instead met with a slap across his face. Daisy, sympathetic towards the chipmunks who had been pressed into slave labor, takes them into her home while bidding a harsh farewell to Donald. A final insult is dealt to Donald when Dale emerges from the house to take the candy Donald had brought as a gift. Donald initially expresses his frustration by beginning to throw his hat, but ultimately forced to accept his fate and begins his walk home.

Lyrics[]

Daisy, Daisy you're the one

That gets me captivated

Everytime you look at me

I get so addlepated

And when I'm riding along the street

Everybody that I meet

Says "there goes the guy

that's crazy over sweet Daisy Mae.

Trivia[]

  • As seen in the Disneyland episode "Where Do the Stories Come From?", the cartoon was inspired in a whole song written by Oliver Wallace, which shares the title of the cartoon "Crazy Over Daisy".
  • Along the cartoon, Donald keeps whistling the song and the cartoon ends with the music again. Donald also briefly whistles the song in Out on a Limb and Dude Duck. He also briefly quacks the song in Chips Ahoy.
  • Donald's design in this cartoon, which notably has him resembling a younger version of Scrooge McDuck, was notably reused for the younger Scrooge's appearance in Mickey's Christmas Carol. Additionally, several early Toon Disney promos that used clips from this short had Donald mistakenly identified as Scrooge.
  • The song "Crazy Over Daisy" had new lyrics written for the record Walt Disney Takes You to Disneyland, and was retitled "Meet Me Down on Main Street". This new version of the song was performed by the Mellomen and was later reused as track 4 of the first disc for A Musical History of Disneyland.
  • This is the only cartoon to have Daisy Duck and Chip 'n Dale pairing together, until 1983 in Mickey's Christmas Carol.
  • This is somewhat of a followup to The Nifty Nineties.
  • During his bicycle ride, Donald rides through reused animation of the band in the gazebo and the children playing from the "Casey at the Bat" segment of Make Mine Music.
  • The cartoon originally had special opening and closing titles, but are lost and the only version in circulation is the 1960's Buena Vista reissue print of the 1950's theatrical print.
