Even in a skit centered around Pomp and Circumstance, Donald Duck can only barely catch a break.
  • "Rhapsody In Blue" is hilarous when it's not busy being a tearjerker, though sometimes the tearjerking element and the funny overlap very nicely.
    • Special mention goes to the scene in the Subway where you can see everyone, including Rachel's parents, uncomfortably packed together. (This is actually Truth in Television given how crowded that stuff can be!) If you look at the squeezed in figures, you can see a foot poking out of the crowd, and A woman's face in a man's armpit. However, the crowning moment really comes when they get off the Subway, are still crowded, and are holding invisible handguards as they pack themselves into an equally cramped elevator. They even walk like this, too!
      • And then they get into a second elevator the same way. They finally scatter after reaching the top floor... except for one poor soul crawling on the floor.
    • Also of mention from that same segment: Rachel's attempts to do ballet that end up with her hopping into the closet and knocking down a whole bunch of junk, her approaching the pool to learn how to swim covered with an inner tube, snorkel, and pool animals, and her attempts to play the piano. And sing.

    • Prior to all of that, at an apartment building, a doorman dusts himself off, then bows. Then he gets an Oh, Crap! expression and braces himself, just as an onslaught of people walk out of the building. After the onslaught of people leaves, he stumbles about and then gets back into position...just as another onslaught of people come out of the building. By this time, he's just lying against the building.
  • The most clearly straight-up hilarious sequence is "Carnival of the Animals", with the yo-yo-obsessed flamingo and his peers who just won't get it.
    • Even before this: James Earl Jones: "Here, the sensitive strains of Impressionistic music combine with the subtle artistry of the animator to finally answer that age-old question...'what is man's relationship to nature?'" *is handed a sheet by an artist* "Oh, sorry. That age-old question... 'what would happen if you gave a yo-yo to a flock of flamingoes?' Who wrote this?"
  • In the DVD commentary (the one which talks about each segment), Donald came by. One of the guys complains why is Donald joining and he can't understand him. Donald brought the animals with him and the flooding waters. He told Donald they're doing a commentary, not a reenactment. The commentary ends him asking where'd he parked the Ark.
  • The "Pomp and Circumstance" segment is full of the sort of comedy you'd expect from a Donald Duck cartoon, although it also has quite a few sad and emotional moments.
  • The Firebird Suite doesn't really allow for much humor given the strong themes of life, death, and rebirth, but one scene has the Spring Sprite grow a cute little flower. While already adequate, she gets a look that says "I can do better." and proceeds to turn it into a big yellow masterpiece. Her satisfied expression just screams "Now that's more like it." It can be inferred as an amusing bit.


How well does it match the trope?
