Plot.

Donald Duck went to a museum. The robot butler takes Donald's hat every time he sees him after he got in without paying. Donald fixes himself a new hat every time this happens and he is very annoyed by it. Donald ignores the sign not to touch it and ends up being wrapped himself. He tried out a robot nursemaid and a fully automatic barber chair. They don't do him very well.
