Synopsis
An aptitude test says that Donald should be a great detective, and so he is hired to investigate the mysterious sinking of one of Uncle Scrooge's gold ships. Donald's true aptitude is that of a snake charmer, though, and his playing so charms a huge sea serpent that he has to keep playing for days.
