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, Zeus and Hephaestus.


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?
