Donald is a lighthouse keeper. He shines the light on a sleeping pelican; the angry bird comes into the lighthouse and tries to put out the light. Donald and the bird do battle through the rest of the picture.
Donald is manning a listening post and falls asleep; he blows trumpet calls in his sleep and wakes his nephews. For their revenge, they send up a model airplane filled with gingerbread men with parachutes; Donald shoots it down, and cowers in fear when he sees the parachutes (and hears a simulated battle), until one lands on his beak. Donald kicks his nephews out until he mistakes a bee for an airplane, and calls them back to fight this menace.Written by

Scenes where Huey, Dewey, and Louie are playing with guns were censored on television, as is the part where the bee makes noises that Donald imagines sound like enemy battleships and airplanes, which have a Japanese feel to them. See more »
Donald is stationed at some listening post in what appears to be a remote part of the Pacific coast. Not a lot is happening. So much so that he falls asleep. His snoring/trumpeting, wakes up his nephews Huey, Duey and Louie who then play a couple of tricks on him.
The few laughs come from Donald thinking he's under attack. Yes, it is a Disney war propaganda cartoon but the Xenophobia isn't as obvious as in other cartoons of the time.
The main problem is that the idea is kind of limited. It never leaves Donald's listening post and there's not a lot of imagination or stuff going on.
Meh! You've seen worse.
