Role in the Short
Donald has a scary and unpleasant evening, until a shady-looking book Salesman appears at his door. Soon after, he disappears, leaving him with a collection of "whodunnit?" novels. He is not seen again after this scene.
The Salesman also appears in; Mickey's 60th Birthday, where he arrives at Donald Duck's House, to arrest him on the charge of abducting Mickey Mouse, who is under a spell, so others do not recognize him, until he finds his own magic.
