Scrooge McDuck Wikia

Another Day at the Patent Office is a comic story written by Glen Garner and drawn by Juan Torres Perez. It features Gyro Gearloose.


Gyro Gearloose presents three new inventions at the patent office, but it's really not his day.


  • Gyro Gearloose has often visited the patent office, and often fails to obtain patent for some of his kookier inventions.
  • The three inventions Gyro presents are a device meant to crack the shell of a boiled egg, a “Perpetual Motion Machine that really works”, and an automatic kicker for getting rid of door-to-door salesmen.
