Trombone Trouble is a cartoon written by Carl Barks and Jack Hannah and directed by Jack King with the help of Esther Newell. It features Donald Duck, Peg-Leg Pete, Jupiter and Vulcan.

Plot[edit | edit source]

Peg-Leg Pete's nightly trombone-playing, on top of his neighbor Donald Duck, bothers even the gods Jupiter and Vulcan up in the heavens. Having had enough, but refusing to intervene themselves, the two divinities decide to make an unwitting Donald their champion by giving him super-strength. Can he use it responsibly to get rid of Pete?

Continuity[edit | edit source]

  • Some time before its release, while it was still in development, the cartoon was novelized as Trombone Trouble, an illustrated story published in Walt Disney's Comics and Stories #32. This rendition of the tale features another pair of gods, Thor and Snor, but is otherwise surprisingly similar to the final treatment.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

This cartoon short was released in 1944.
