Donald Duck In "Right Wing Radio Duck"

This was the viral video of the weekend, a full-length Donald Duck cartoon built by Jonathan McIntosh out of dozens of clips from Donald cartoons, plus a familiar voice on the radio. You don’t have to agree with the message (I don’t — at least not with the idea that economically insecure people are the primary audience for these shows) to get the real point of this: it is a true, effective Donald Duck cartoon. The structure is right, the clips are arranged into a story that Donald might actually get involved in, and of course the real Disney cartoons abounded in trippy hallucinations. Didn’t you know that Panchito Pistoles was coming for Donald’s job?
