Mickey, Donald, and Goofy are cleaning a large clock. Among the complications: Mickey fights a sleeping stork that doesn't want to leave, Donald gets tangled up in the main-spring, and Goofy is inside the bell when the clock strikes four.
Woody is standing outside the Seville Barber Shop looking at the ads. Wanting a "victory haircut", he decides to enter the shop only to find the owner has stepped out for a physical. Woody decides to cut his own hair ("I cut my own teeth") but unfortunately is mistaken for the owner when two other customers enter, one an Indian who wants a quick shampoo and the other, a construction worker who wants "the whole works" and, unfortunately, gets it.

Like Bugs Bunny, Woody Woodpecker is unflappable. He steps into places and dominates. In this case, the barber, Figaro, has gone to get his army physical. It's well into the U.S. participation in World War II, so able bodied men would be leaving for war. Anyway, Woody decides to take over for the barber. There is the racist treatment of a stereotypical movie Indian. Then he cuts the hair of a construction worker. He literally terrorizes those he treats. Woody's manic being is so crazy, that I, as a viewer, see him as a true danger. This is borne out. We do get to hear Woody sing the frantic aria in that awful reedy voice. Still, Walter Lantz deserves a bit of animation credit.
