It's a peaceful day in a local city when suddenly, duck J.J. Fate appears to lecture us on how "fate" isn't to blame for accidents, people are! He uses Donald Duck as an example. Donald is extremely accident prone. He lights his pipe in a room with a gas leak, slips on a throw rug while carrying a fish bowl, overloads electrical outlets, and continually falls down the stairs. Finally, Donald has had enough and fixes his house guaranteeing no more accidents. That's good for Donald but the rest of the accident prone city still has to learn "not to blame fate for your carelessness". Written by

You know, accidents don't just happen by themselves. They have to be carelessly planned in advance. So step right up and have an accident. The average home is really a complicated piece of machinery, equipped with all the modern conveniences... for having an accident, if you inisist.

This was my favorite cartoon short when I first saw it as part of the episode, Man Is His Own Worst Enemy, of Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color. It features a character called J.J. Fate who tells about some people's carelessness in the home, including Donald Duck's. What results are classic and hilarious scenes featuring Donald having mishaps around his house, including tripping over toys, falling downstairs, electrocuting himself and blowing up the kitchen. While funny and displays classic Donald humor, gags and energy, the story also leaves a good lesson and message as to what the consequences are if you don't take care of yourself and things around you.
It's a great cartoon short with vibrant animation and a fun plot!
