Scrooge McDuck Wikia

Dirk the Dinosaur is a comic story written by Patsy Trench and Bob Bartholomew and drawn by Vicar. It features Donald Duck, Huey, Dewey and Louie Duck and Gyro Gearloose.


Donald Duck and his nephews, gazing dreamily at the skeleton of a dinosaur in the Duckburg Museum, explain to the curious tour guide that they actually hatched and raised that dinosaur a year earlier thanks to Gyro Gearloose's Time Coupe.

Behind the scenes

This story was first published on September the 1st, 1986 in the Danish Anders And & Co. #1986-37. It is the first story to feature the Time Coupe and has therefore sometimes been considered a "Chapter 0" of the Time Machine series.
