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.

In this cartoon short, Donald Duck is the baggage handler at a railway station and encounters Hortense the Ostrich. The ostrich turns out to be too friendly of an animal and eats everything in sight, from an alarm clock to balloons, ending itself with uncontrollable hiccups.
Donald's classic frustrated and temperamental personality works well with the character and is very entertaining. However, the Hortense character proves to be too cute and overly cuddly, making it annoying and not very funny to look at. The hiccup gags get old quick throughout the short and consumes much of the picture, losing less room for other humorous stuff. But, Donald does pull through with some laughable moments and radio bit was amusing.
