Donald Duck[edit]

  • [As Donald listened to the radio story, the armchair behind him turned to be a gorilla from his imaginary and screamed] YA! [He fled to the front door, a mysterious man appeared in front of the door].
  • [After the characters from the book returned, and after the radio voice's comment, Donald still in dazed] Yeah, uh-huh. IMAGINATION. Uh...

Radio Voice[edit]

  • RELAX, just relax. Let your imagination go.
  • Really nothing there, is there? Well, possibly it was only YOUR imagination.


[first lines]

Radio Voice: RELAX, just relax. Let your imagination go. Now turn out the light. [Donald turned the lights off] Ah, there, that's better. My story begins: a woman speaks.

[a woman screams, Donald turned the lights back on, frightened]

Bookseller: [questioning] Are you Mr. D. Duck?
Donald Duck: [trembling] Y-yes, sir.
Bookseller: I've been lookin' for you. [revealing loads of horror novels and vulgar story books from inside his large coat]

Detective Hennessey: Now it's the pearls and the whole dame that's missing.
Donald Duck: WHAT DAME?!
Detective Hennessey: "What dame?" he's asking. [suddenly turns around behind him to embrace Pauline]
Detective Hennessey: Why, this dame. The dame whose pearls you snatched. [lets her go and then faces Donald again]
Detective Hennessey: Now are you gonna COUGH 'em up... [takes out a switchblade and presses the blade against Donald's throat]
Detective Hennessey: ... or am I gonna have to CUT 'em outta ya?

[last lines]

Radio Voice: [After the characters returned] Really nothing there, is there? Well, possibly it was only YOUR imagination.
Donald Duck: [dazed] Yeah, uh-huh. IMAGINATION. Uh... [Donald's neck wore a necklace with big white pearls from his imagination as the cartoon faded out].


  • Several of the characters' names are spoofs on the names of Disney staff members. H.U. Hennesy is a spoof on Disney artist Hugh Hennesy, J. Harold King probably refers to director Jack King, and Leslie J. Clark is a play on the name of another Disney artist, Les Clark.
  • The main title has the word "Goose" crossed out and "Duck" written in.
