“Felix is handing out relief, thanks to a goose that lays golden eggs. The evil Captain Kidd sees the goose and breaks into Felix’s house to get it. He brings the goose to his pirate ship. Felix arrives too late to catch the ship. Goldie won’t lay for the pirates. Felix sees a cannon and turns himself into a human cannonball to catch the ship. With help from Goldie and another cannon, he subdues the crew, wrapping them in the sail and depositing them in the hold. He and Kidd have a sword fight, but their swords melt together. Kidd chases Felix up the mast, then foolishly cuts off his own support. He falls into the hold. They sail for home, where Felix fires off cannon loads of gold coins.” (IMDB)
