Donald is manning a listening post and falls asleep; he blows trumpet calls in his sleep and wakes his nephews. For their revenge, they send up a model airplane filled with gingerbread men with parachutes; Donald shoots it down, and cowers in fear when he sees the parachutes (and hears a simulated battle), until one lands on his beak. Donald kicks his nephews out until he mistakes a bee for an airplane, and calls them back to fight this menace. Written by

Donald is stationed at some listening post in what appears to be a remote part of the Pacific coast. Not a lot is happening. So much so that he falls asleep. His snoring/trumpeting, wakes up his nephews Huey, Duey and Louie who then play a couple of tricks on him.
The few laughs come from Donald thinking he's under attack. Yes, it is a Disney war propaganda cartoon but the Xenophobia isn't as obvious as in other cartoons of the time.
The main problem is that the idea is kind of limited. It never leaves Donald's listening post and there's not a lot of imagination or stuff going on.
Meh! You've seen worse.
