Scrooge McDuck Wikia

A Lesson from Granny is a comic story written by George Davie, penciled by Jim Fletcher and inked by Ellis Eringer. It features Magica De Spell, Madam Mim, Scrooge McDuck, Huey, Dewey and Louie Duck, and, in her debut, Granny De Spell.


Magica De Spell and Madam Mim enlist the help of Magica's retired but still quite powerful witch grandmother, Granny De Spell, to once again attempt to get Scrooge McDuck's Number One Dime. Granny is quick to remotely cast a mind-control spell on Scrooge, ordering him to bring the Dime to the castle of Mim and Magica. But Huey, Dewey and Louie Duck, Scrooge's triplets who happen to be with their uncle when the curse strikes him, are equally quick to figure out what's going on and think up a counteroffensive…

Behind the scenes

This story, the debut of Granny De Spell, was first published in 1966 in the Australian Giant #381, which was subtitled Magica De Spell Special. It has never been reprinted in English, whether in Australia, in the U.S.A., or elsewhere.

(Due to the unavailability of vintage Australian comic books to the editors of this wiki, this page was based off of the French and Brazilian printings of the story. The first page seen above is a reconstruction of an English version, based on the French printing. As such, it may not perfectly reflect George Davie's original dialogue.)
