Scrooge McDuck Wikia

Buried money is a comic story written by Bob Karp and drawn by Al Taliagerro. It features Donald Duck; Grandma Duck, in her first ever appearance, is featured as a portrait.


Donald Duck, who has finally gotten his hands on a reasonable amount of money, doesn't know where to put it. After hearing of bank robbings, he insists to keep it all in cash in his house, until he hears of houses burning down with nothing saved. This time, he settles on burying his treasure in his garden. But is it such a good idea with all the moles and gophers?
