Donald does not listen to his nephews. They warn their uncle not to eat too much parsnip and banana oil parfait topped with creamed gooseberries. Consuming this “delicacy” always gave him terrible nightmares. And indeed, Donald has no less than four bad dreams. Fortunately he always falls into sleep again. The next morning brings a joyful surprise, it is Donald’s birthday. Donald happily shows the nephews the present from his uncle Scrooge – a gift certificate for 16 gallons of parsnip parfait. Huey, Dewey and Louie promptly faint.

This story was published at Donald’s 60th anniversary as a frame plot. The ten pages are divided into five double-page episodes, interspersed with stories by other artists: “The Duck Who Never Was” by Don Rosa, “The Case Of The Vanishing Coats” by Floyd Gottfredson, “The Secret Of Mars” by Federico Pedrocchi and “The Victory Garden” by Carl Barks. Two beautiful mosquitoes congratulate.
