Donald Duck is on trial. For what? Not paying his bill at the fancy restaurant of the mannered but secretly brutish Pierre. Although the case might seem clear-cut and well within the realm of the trouble Donald usually gets into, it soon becomes clear that not everything is as it seems.
- Pierre is the owner of the restaurant/café Chez Pierre, which appears to be located near a park, itself located near to Donald Duck's current place of work (wherever that is).
- This story is an adaptation of a cartoon released at the end of the previous month, also titled The Trial of Donald Duck (1948). The story generally sticks to the facts of the cartoon, but made Pierre a dognose rather than a human, and removed the framing device of the trial itself, instead presenting a linear narrative.
Behind the scenes
The Trial of Donald Duck was first printed in Walt Disney's Comics & Stories #95, and was reprinted in English in Disney Comics' Donald Duck Adventures #34 as "The Trial of DD".
