Mickey, Donald, and Goofy are cleaning a large clock. Among the complications: Mickey fights a sleeping stork that doesn't want to leave, Donald gets tangled up in the main-spring, and Goofy is inside the bell when the clock strikes four.
When the bell rings with Goofy inside it, he looks out suspiciously and says "Mice!" This is a reference to W.C. Fields who said exactly the same thing when there was a crash backstage during one of his comedy acts.
Hey! What's the big idea?
Spring: What's the big idea?
Donald: Aw, shut up!
Spring: You shut up!
Donald: Oh yeah?
Spring: Oh yeah?
Donald: Says you!
Spring: Says I!
Donald: I'll bust you, you doggone snake-in-the-grass!
One version omits the scene where Mickey tries to get the stork out of the clock tower.
