Fun? What's That? is a comic story written and drawn by Carl Barks. It features Gyro Gearloose, the Little Helper and Scrooge McDuck, and, in their debuts, Doctor Quacker and Yogi Wisenik.


Sick from overworking themselves, Scrooge McDuck and Gyro Gearloose are persuaded by a physician to cease all work-related activity and go take a holiday. Neither, however, finds any of the possible types of vacations too suited to their characters…


  • Scrooge McDuck can't stop himself from counting things even when he's trying to relax.
  • The Little Helper's electric-bulb head can be used as a source of heat. The Helper is sturdy enough to survive being eaten by a bear.
