Scrooge McDuck Wikia

Dreamtime Duck of the Never Never is a comic story written and drawn by Don Rosa. It features Scrooge McDuck, Jabiru Kapirgi, and, as drawings in a prophecy, Donald Duck and Huey, Dewey, and Louie. Fergus and Jake McDuck also appear.


Scrooge McDuck, who is now "fossicking" for gold in Australia, saves an aborigine wiseman named Jabiru Kapirigi from a thief. The wiseman, in return, takes him along with him on his journey to see the prophecy of Bindagbindag's dream. In the prophecy cavern, there is also a large opal, which is soon stolen by the same thief Scrooge previously fought off. Chasing him, Scrooge recovers the opal but loses his Number One Dime. After a flood, he returns the opal to it's cavern (after thinking about whether to steal it) and finds Jabiru the next day, now in a different prophecy cavern. The prophecy tells Scrooge where his dime can be found, and lets him see another prophecy as a reward for returning the opal: he should go to the Klondike if he wants to find his fortune. Scrooge promptly sets off, as Jabiru looks at the rest of the prophecy, wondering what it could mean.
