Scrooge McDuck Wikia

Having a Panic is a comic story written by Don Christensen, penciled by Tony Strobl and inked by John Liggera. It features Donald Duck, Scrooge McDuck, Ludwig von Drake, Gyro Gearloose and Huey, Dewey and Louie Duck.


Left to tend to the vast lawns of Scrooge McDuck's summer estate while he's off gallivanting in Afghoristan, Donald Duck accidentally causes a crabgrass infestation – and makes the mistake of asking Ludwig von Drake for advice. One thing leading to another, Ludwig's increasingly kooky advice leads to an infestation of moose and giant snails, along with the U.S. army, all crowding up Scrooge's garden!
