Goofy the fisherman catches a magic fish which grants him a wish when he puts it back in the ocean. He wishes to be a farmer, but soon abandons this job due to the labor involved and wishes instead to be a sea captain. This ends in mishap when burglars sneak in and steal his gold. He wishes for several other posts, which the fish patiently grants, ending with him being King but then being betrayed by his troops. He wishes to resume work as a fisherman, and now in his current life again, never again summons the fish.
