Donald's Tire Trouble

Donald's Tire Trouble is a cartoon by Walt Disney Productions, featuring their character Donald Duck. It was directed by Dick Lundy, and released in 1943.


While speeding on the road, Donald Duck runs over a nail on a horseshoe causing it to pop his tire, necessitating its replacement with the car's spare. He encounters difficulty lifting the car with his jack, removing the damaged tire, and repairing it with a patch. Unfortunately for him, all four tires immediately pop once he resumes driving (he rants out "Retreads!" and blows a fuse), but he continues his trip undaunted on four flats.


The cartoon pokes fun at the difficulties involved in America's rubber rationing, a consequence of World War II.[1]
