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

Several of the characters' names are spoofs on the names of Disney staff members. H.U. Hennesy is a spoof on Disney artist Hugh Hennesy, J. Harold King probably refers to director Jack King, and Leslie J. Clark is a play on the name of another Disney artist, Les Clark. See more »
Relax, just relax. Let your imagination go. Now turn out the light. Ah, there, that's better. My story begins: a woman speaks.

In this Disney cartoon, Donald reads a mystery book sold to him by an oddball salesman and becomes so involved in that his imagination makes it appear the characters are coming to life, making Donald the center of the mystery caper. What results is this detective-like but unexciting whodunit mystery that features these random characters, including one that resembles Jessica Rabbit.
This is not the conventional humorous, action-flicked and bad luck-plaque Donald Duck cartoon. I didn't get a whole lot of laughs from this one. The attempt at the mystery setting is clever and the animation is great, but the overall story itself is pretty boring, unfortunately.
