Donald Applecore is a 1952 American animated short film directed by Jack Hannah and produced by Walt Disney. In the short film, Donald is an apple farmer trying to save his crop from two mischievous chipmunks.


Donald the apple farmer notices his apples have been nibbled on and catches Chip and Dale in the act. His battle with them over their eating his apples escalates until he bombs them with atomic pellets. In the ensuing battle, Donald uses a helicopter to spray them (but they have tiny gas masks). And then he brings in the really heavy artillery. One of his hens eats a pellet, laying an egg bomb. It explodes while Donald is holding it, creating a hole that sends him all the way to China.
