Donald is the baggagemaster at a remote railway station. Part of the latest cargo shipment is Hortense the Ostrich, who is a bit too friendly with Donald, and who eats everything in sight, whether it's food or not (mostly not): a concertina, an alarm clock, some balloons, all of which start reacting when Hortense gets the hiccups.Written by

A sequence featuring a second attempt by Donald to scare a hiccuping Hortense by wearing a painted mask was animated but ultimately cut from the released cartoon. It was likely cut because the mask resembled Frankenstein's monster whose rights were owned by Universal Studios. The scene was unseen by the public until a black-and-white print was found on a 9.5 mm Pathéscope reel entitled "Donald's Disguise". See more »
Hortense is clearly a female ostrich and should therefore have light brown feathers. However, her color scheme is black and white like that of a male. See more »
Donald is now employed at a train station out in the country. A package off a train breaks open and out pops Hortense the Ostrich. Wow, a recipe for chaos if there ever was one. Obviously Hortense falls in love with Donald and gives him loads of kisses, which he strangely doesn't like. Donald chases Hortense all over the station as he tries to keep her under control and stop her swallowing alarm clocks and accordions and stuff.
Yes, it's the usual mayhem and nothing particularly remarkable. From the mild entertainment of this cartoon it's easy to see why Hortense the Ostrich never came back.
