It's chore time in the home of Donald Duck, but nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie would rather play Hawaiian music in their treehouse or indulge in a pirate game. Preparing to punish his nephews, Donald is stopped in his tracks by "The Voice of Child Psychology", who encourages Donald to "be a pal" and join their games. Alas, "understanding" goes to rather ridiculous lengths when Donald mistakes three escaped cannibals for his nephews. This cartoon is highlighted by the satirical silent-movie-style subtitles which periodically interrupt the action.
