Storyline

Donald has an unpleasant evening when a mysterious book salesman comes to his door then disappears leaving Donald with a collection of whodunnit novels. He reads one and gets so fully involved in it that it appears that the characters are actually coming out of the book and into his living room getting him involved in the murder caper. Finally the author of the book, J. Harold King, steps forth and claims Donald innocent. The characters return to the novel from whence they came leaving Donald wondering if it was really just his "imagination". Written by Matt Yorston <george.y@ns.sympatico.ca>

It looks as if the Disney staff did a few hits of acid before they made this one!
1 November 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is one of the weirdest and most surreal shorts I have ever seen and it's really a surprise that it came from Disney. Unlike a typical Donal Duck film, this one has a bizarre stream of consciousness that defies my ability to explain it in mere words. Believe me...it's really weird--like the Disney staff decided to try making a short after taking some LSD or something!

Donald is at home reading and listening to the radio. The stuff he's being bombarded with is pretty scary and suddenly the radio show and book start coming to life! Characters from a murder mystery come jumping out of his book and the radio provides lots of appropriate creepy music. It's crazy--and well worth seeing just because it is so atypical. About the only Donald film I've ever seen that comes close to this one in weirdness is "Der Fuehrer's Face". Yes, it's that weird--with very elastic characters, a pre-Jessica Rabbit sort of hot dame and a style that just seems so un-Disney. Well worth seeing.
