Mickey directs the broom in his chore but falls asleep and dreams that he is a powerful wizard controlling the mighty seas and starry skies.
Awakening to find that the basin is overflowing and the broom is still filling it up.
Mickey races to the wizard's spellbook looking for a counter-spell, but to no avail.
After nearly drowning in a giant whirlpool, Mickey is rescued by the wizard, who magically halts the flood and causes the brooms to vanish.
