Donald is a plumber fixing pipes in the basement of a house, while Pluto happens to also be there trying to enjoy a juicy bone lunch. Although no house owner is ever revealed, it can be assumed that perhaps the pair are at Mickey's home. The cartoon revolves around a running magnet gag which causes mischief and mayhem for Pluto and Donald.
This is the first time since his debut in The Wise Little Hen that Donald Duck appears in a cartoon without Mickey Mouse.
This cartoon also showcases the new design for Donald Duck, which includes a slimmer body, shorter neck, rounder feet, and a shorter bill.
