"Flipperboobootosis" is the fifteenth episode of Mickey Mouse.
Donald gets a foot ailment called "Flipperboobootosis", but refuses to go to the doctor to get treatment, so Mickey and Goofy try to help him find a cure.
Mickey and Goofy are having a barbecue in the backyard. Donald shows up and weakly says "Hey guys." Mickey greets him back, but freaks out at the sight of a large, pulsing, red bump on Donald's foot. Mickey examines it as flipperboobootosis, a serious condition. Goofy states that Donald should see a doctor, but Donald appears to be afraid of doctors. Mickey and Goofy then decide to help Donald get rid of his ailment without going to the doctor.
First, Mickey uses honey to sooth the pain, but the honey attracts a bear to Mickey's house and rapidly claws at Donald.
Next, Goofy tries to do a foot massage, but when he squeezes down on Donald's foot, the ailment enters Goody's head. Mickey tries to help but the ailment goes into his head as well and then it goes back into Donald's foot. Donald screams in anger.
Third, Mickey decides to re-harmonize his aura by lighting up five crystals and leave the ailment untouched. Goofy then comes in with a wooden mallet and smashes Donald's right foot, but it only causes him to scream in pain.
The ailment is now getting worse and it's purple as also larger. Mickey now decides that it's time they faced facts and have to play the only card they have left: take Donald to the doctor. Mickey and Goofy chase Donald down the street until they get a grasp on Donald's leg. Mickey and Goofy pull Donald's leg all the way to the hospital while Donald escapes to an cruise ship. However, Donald's leg pulls Donald all the way back to the hospital.
Donald regains consciousness in the hospital where he sees that the ailment is gone and he goes to thank the doctor, but sees that the doctor was the bear from earlier and the short ends with Mickey, Goofy and the bear all laughing while a scared Donald remains silent.
