Scrooge McDuck Wikia

Beyond The Moon is a comic story written by Vic Lockman, penciled by Tony Strobl and inked by Steve Steere. It features Donald Duck, Huey, Dewey and Louie Duck, Professor Pintail, and, in their debuts, Professor Hermit, Doctor Drake, General McQuack and the Hermit Dragons. Daisy Duck is also mentioned.


Donald Duck, who has recently taken up yo-yo, is hired by the Duckburg Space Exploration Academy to venture into space, beyond the Moon, in search of the disappeared Professor Hermit. He accepts, only to find Huey, Dewey and Louie Duck have stowed away with him… and that's only the first of Donald's troubles!
