Donald Duck in Mathemagic Land

I was reading Ganesh's post, "Any Guesses?", and the mention of the Golden Ratio reminded me of this film. It's quite old, from the eighties (or maybe even seventies...I don't know). In it, Donald Duck has an extended adventure inside his head, with an omniscient narrator voice teaching him stuff about math while the stuff he's learning beats him up. It's an original, brilliant, hilarious film, and I loved it as a kid. I wish I had a copy...

That, and the Twelve Tasks of Asterisk.

Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

Asterix ... vague memories from childhood. Perhaps this ?

Donald Duck in Mathemagic Land.
What's wrong in Donald Duck's name?
Donald is a male name, duck is feminine gender.
So, it should be Donald Drake. smile big_smile big_smile big_smile
