A Drain on the Economy

Scrooge McDuck and Flintheart Glomgold are ushered into a meeting by a fellow known as the Grand Quiche. Up for grabs is the Quiche’s legendary supply of firefly fruit, pear-like fruit that glows in the dark (‘and makes a delicious ‘light-snack’). However, the Grand Quiche will give distribution of his fruit to the richest of the two. Scrooge and Glomgold now have a limited time to get their fortunes to a secret location, where a giant scale will weigh their fortunes to determine the winner. However, Glomgold is not about to lose. Enlisting the Beagle Boys, Glomgold tries to have them steal Scrooge’s fortune. However, a mishap with a supertank of Scrooge’s causes the money bin to crack at it’s base, dumping all of Scrooge’s fortune into the Duckburg sewer system. Now it’s a race to see who can get to Scrooge’s fortune first.
