Scrooge McDuck Wikia

Getting Thor is a comic story written and drawn by Carl Barks. It features Gyro Gearloose, the Little Helper and a picture of Thor, and, in their debuts, Old Blackie and the Fiercest, Fightingest Scarecrow That Ever Snorted Fire. The Storm Gods are mentioned.


Gyro Gearloose, having trouble with crows who seem bent on eating his strawberries, works hard on inventing the fiercest scarecrow ever designed. However, Little Helper has a simpler, more whimsical plan: he dresses up as Thor and scares the birds away riding a flying chariot he created.
