Donald Duck and the Gorilla is a Donald Duck Cartoon originally released in 1944. It stars Donald Duck along with his three nephews; Huey, Dewey and Louie and Ajax, the Gorilla. The 1930 Mickey cartoon The Gorilla Mystery has a similar plot involving a gorilla named Beppo who captures Minnie Mouse.


One stormy night, Donald and his nephews overhear the radio announcer, Breckenridge, notify the listeners that a gorilla named Ajax has escaped from the city zoo. As a prank, Donald frightens his nephews with gorilla hands to make it seem as if he is Ajax. To get revenge on their uncle, the nephews dress up in a gorilla suit and scare Donald. At the same time, the real Ajax breaks into the house, whom Donald momentarily believes is the triplets' disguise before spotting them. As Ajax chases Donald through his house, with the help of the radio announcer, the nephews use tear gas to stop Ajax, although it affects Donald as well. Tearing up, Ajax and Donald console one another.
