To save it from being put to death, Professor Albert Dooley takes home a dumb duck from the research laboratory, which accidentally was exposed to X-rays. At home he discovers that it lays now golden eggs. Since he's broke all the time, his family welcomes this new source of income greatly, and tries to keep it secret. But their greedy neighbors become suspicious. Written by

Near the conclusion of the movie, just before Jimmy captures Charlie the duck, there is a Volkswagen Beetle with the license plate OFP 857. The tag was the very same as Herbie's in The Love Bug
(1968), another Disney movie starring Dean Jones
that was the first in a series of "Love Bug" films. See more
