Donald is the baggagemaster at a remote railway station. Part of the latest cargo shipment is Hortense the Ostrich, who is a bit too friendly with Donald, and who eats everything in sight, whether it's food or not (mostly not): a concertina, an alarm clock, some balloons, all of which start reacting when Hortense gets the hiccups.Written by

Donald is at work when a package suddenly springs open and it's an ostrich. There's a note attached to it saying that the ostrich will eat anything and for the next several minutes that's exactly what he does.
DONALD'S OSTRICH is a pretty bland short, which is shocking considering this was Disney after all. It's not that Disney never made a bad film but this one here is really lacking any laughs and I'd argue that it's really not all that creative either. The entire running time basically has the ostrich eating various items and reacting to what it has eaten. This just isn't all that funny and the one-note gag gets rather old quickly.
