The Overnight Hero is a comic story written by Vic Lockman and drawn by Dick Moores. It features Donald Duck, Danilo Duck, Buck Duck, Hopalong Duck, Cosmo Duck and Dicky Drake, among others.


At a gathering of Duck family members, Donald finds himself embarassed to be a plumber when some of his cousins are astronauts, wildlife catchers, explorers, detectives and other such "heroic" jobs. Rather than laugh at him however, his relatives take it upon themselves to teach Donald one of their glorious trades. But goodwill is not all it takes to become a good astronaut or a successful private eye…
