Daffy goes to the beach with his girlfriend Melissa (voiced by an uncredited Gladys Holland, an actress heard in United Productions of America's adaptation of Madeline, 1952), and prepares to take her picture. While posing, she sees a muscle-bound duck and turns her attention toward him. Daffy gets upset and tells the muscle-bound duck (a soft-spoken yet still arrogant fellow) to get lost who replies that he'll bob Daffy so hard he'll have to open his vest to eat if he says one more word. Daffy takes the threat as a joke, and the muscle-bound duck proceeds to hit Daffy so hard that his head sinks into his stomach. In a daze, Daffy orders "One cheeseburger, hold the onions". Melissa encourages Daffy to fight back, but he is too afraid. Disgusted by his cowardice, Melissa goes off with the muscle-bound duck and bids Daffy farewell, calling him a "scrawny little nine pound weakling" which offends Daffy as he considers himself a "scrawny little ten pound weakling." Daffy tries to win back his girl and takes some muscle tonic, bought from a glad-handed traveling salesman who happens to be nearby, which he thinks has made him as strong as the muscle-bound duck. Daffy repeatedly falls short in his attempts to demonstrate his strength, but through a fluke (and one of the salesman's props, a "five thousand-pound" barbell), manages to dispatch his rival in the end. The muscle bound duck lifts the "barbell" and gets rocketed thousands of feet in air. When he plummets back to Earth in a squatted down form, he tells the couple "You all can call me shorty!", and waddles off.
- The ABC version of this cartoon cuts the part where the big, muscular duck pounds Daffy's head into his shirt.
