Storyline

Officer Donald Duck (Officer #13) is assigned to apprehend a criminal named Tiny Tom. Donald assumes by the name that he'll be a pushover but when he reaches Tom's hideout, he discovers "Tiny" Tom is actually a hulking Pete who immediately disposes of Donald. Donald decides to use strategy and is able to reenter Pete's house disguised as a baby who Pete surprisingly warms to. When Pete discovers Donald, he chases him down the street but is finally apprehended by Donald's marching police colleagues who make the arrest. Written by Matt Yorston <george.y@ns.sympatico.ca>

One of my favorite Donald vs. Pete cartoons
7 October 2009 | by ja_kitty_71See all my reviews

This short is one of my favorite Donald vs. Pete cartoon, besides "Timber" and "Trombone Trouble". In this short, Donald is a police officer ordered to pick up "Tiny Tom" (Pete), and bring him into custody. But Tiny Tom isn't so "tiny" as Donald thought and the arrest didn't good so well. So Officer Duck use strategy and disguise himself as a baby and soon big, tough Tiny Tom becomes a nice guy. Isn't is funny? A cop and a crook play "baby and papa?" I love the part when Donald hits Tom on the head with a pipe from the wall, and from the blow the outline of Tom's face (from the side-view) is indented on the pipe.

I remember watching this short on TV - the edited version. Of course on TV, they didn't show how Tiny Tom lit a cigar with a plumber's torch and later shoots the door with a machine-gun. Overall, this short to me, is one of the best Donald Duck cartoons of 1939.
