The Horn-Thief was a male giant.


This rough-mannered giant was among the mythological creatures living on the Island of Erinia, where he acted as the shepherd. At some point before 1981, his greed got the better of him and he used his physical strength to steal the Horn of Plenty and restrict it to his own personal use, cutting the other inhabitants off from their main source of food. A prophecy was made that a hero would come from beyond the sea and take the Horn back; in 1981, that "hero" arrived in the rather unconventional form of Scrooge McDuck, who, with the help of Huey, Dewey and Louie Duck, was able to take the Cornucopia back from the giant. Enraged, the colossus tried chasing after them and ended up plummeting down a mountain to his presumed death.

Behind the scenesEdit

The Horn-Thief only ever appeared in the 1981 Uncle Scrooge and the Horn of Plenty.
