Donald decides to try cooking along with a radio show. He tries to make waffles but accidentally uses rubber cement in the mix.
Donald is listening to a radio cooking program and mixes up a batch of waffles, but he's distracted and uses rubber cement instead of baking powder. The batter proves to be unusually stiff. First his spoon gets stuck and the batter acts like a rubber-band airplane, flying the bowl around the room. Next, Donald gets his head stuck in the batter (and his tail in the waffle iron). Then he tries to chop it with an ax, and the ax flies up and splits the room in half. Finally, he throws the bowl out the door; it sticks to the knob while the bowl gets stuck between two trees. The stretching causes a branch to knock on the door, tricking Donald into opening it, and letting the batter back in. After several attempts, he has had enough and rushes to the radio studio where the cooking program is being broadcasted, and takes his anger out on Old Mother Mallard. Her screams can be heard from the radio and it shuffles about to show us clearly that Donald is attacking her.

- Near the end, Donald ends up with batter all over his body suspended from the ceiling like a marionette. Appropriately, "I've Got No Strings" from Pinocchio, which was released a year earlier, plays in the background.
