Storyline

Donald is the baggagemaster at a remote railway station. Part of the latest cargo shipment is Hortense the Ostrich, who is a bit too friendly with Donald, and who eats everything in sight, whether it's food or not (mostly not): a concertina, an alarm clock, some balloons, all of which start reacting when Hortense gets the hiccups.

Donald is now employed at a train station out in the country. A package off a train breaks open and out pops Hortense the Ostrich. Wow, a recipe for chaos if there ever was one. Obviously Hortense falls in love with Donald and gives him loads of kisses, which he strangely doesn't like. Donald chases Hortense all over the station as he tries to keep her under control and stop her swallowing alarm clocks and accordions and stuff.

Yes, it's the usual mayhem and nothing particularly remarkable. From the mild entertainment of this cartoon it's easy to see why Hortense the Ostrich never came back.
