The Fantasy Finder is a machine created in 1969 by Gyro Gearloose.
Built by Gyro Gearloose from the shell of an old grandfather clock, the Fantasy Finder is a teleporting pod capable of taking one or two passengers to wherever and whenever a well-known fantasy story “really happened”, whether it simply be a forgotten ancient past, or an outright fantasyland. To use it, one must simply get in, set the return dial, and punch a button while thinking about the fairy tale or legend with which one wishes to interact. Gyro used the Fantasy Finder to meet Puss-in-Boots, Jack and Jill and the Three Bears and to visit the Gingerbread House; together with Scrooge, he also travelled back to Ancient Greece to meet Hercules.
Behind the scenesEdit
