Plot[edit | edit source]
Having been sent out by Mim to capture a dog for her cat Spitfire to play with, the Beagle Boys bring back an abducted Pluto. Aghast at drawing Mickey Mouse's ire, Mim orders them to bring him back home instantly. Realizing that they cannot do so in broad daylight as themselves, Mim shapeshifts the Beagles into the forms of Donald Duck, Scrooge McDuck and Ludwig von Drake. What could go wrong?
