Donald Duck goes to a museum of modern inventions. After getting in without paying, he meets a robot butler who takes Donald's hat every time he sees him. Donald is very annoyed by this and magically fixes himself a new hat every time this happens and strolls on. Ignoring the sign not to touch it, Donald starts playing with a wrapping machine and ends up being wrapped himself. He also encounters and tries out a robot nursemaid and a fully automatic barber chair. They both don't do him much good.Written by

After Donald Duck finally gets free from the upside down gag haircut with the barber cut machine that locked him in. The robot butler takes Donalds forth hat away and Donald Duck throws a temper tantrum. It's unknown if Donald Duck ever got his 4 hats back that the robot butler stole from him. Also it's unknown if Donald Duck ever washed his black shoe shine polish off his face that turned his white face all black and if he fixed his feathery rear end that was parted with comb and with his tail feathers turned into a pigtail design to be back to normal.

I really liked this cartoon, it is inventive and very funny. The animation is nice and colourful, though the character animation of the robots was a little stiff. And the cartoon does start off a little slow. The music is top notch, very playful and pleasant. Donald is as cantankerous as ever, especially when voiced by Clarence "Ducky" Nash, who captures the character perfectly.
On the whole, the cartoon is very funny, from the ongoing joke about the robot(voiced by Billy Bletcher, original voice of Pete) taking Donald's hats, to the part when Donald disguises himself as a baby and gets more than he bargained for. Modern Inventions is an inventive and fun cartoon, and for fans of the cantankerous quack, this is definitely worth the watch. 8/10 Bethany Cox
