The premise of this Disneyland "clip show" is manifested in a birthday party for Donald Duck. Having planned a surprise party for their "Unca Donald", Huey, Dewey and Louie are surprised to discover that Donald has already arranged his own natal celebration, complete with home movies. While the nephews would rather watch Donald's Disney colleagues Mickey Mouse, Goofy and Pluto--in fact, they'd sooner enjoy The Mickey Mouse Club on TV, or even make their umpteenth trip to Disneyland--Donald insists upon screening his own cinematic triumphs. Included in this mostly-animated entry is a live segment featuring the Mousketeers and Disney's own ragtime band, The Firehouse Five Plus Two. Rebroadcast three times on Disney's various TV anthologies, "At Home with Donald Duck" was again seen as a special on April 4, 1979, retitled Happy Birthday Donald Duck.
