Plot[edit]

Pete is cacophonically playing his trombone through the night. The gods Jupiter and Vulcan (who are ducks like Donald) are woken by Pete's noise and decide to think of some way to stop this. Donald has a similar issue. He can't sleep with Pete's noise. He goes to Pete's house, and Pete responds by blowing through the trombone as hard as he can right in Donald's face, sending Donald back into his house into a wall. Jupiter and Vulcan notice Donald wanting to stop the noise, so Jupiter decides to give him some of his power so he can get rid of Pete. Donald fires lightning bolts from his hands, makes his hands electric, and develops godlike strength and succeeds in getting rid of Pete. Jupiter and Vulcan think that their troubles are now over, and go back to sleep on their cloud. Donald notices Pete's trombone and decides to play it. Jupiter and Vulcan awake to see that the one whom they helped get rid of Pete is now playing the trombone himself and they collapse from exasperation.
