Scrooge McDuck Wikia

Melting Pot is a comic story written and drawn by Vicar. It features Donald Duck, Huey, Dewey and Louie Duck, Scrooge McDuck, Gyro Gearloose, Asterix, Obelix, Vitalstatistix, Fulliautomatix and Dogmatix.


Donald Duck, Huey, Dewey and Louie Duck and Gyro Gearloose have travelled back to 50 B.C., France, in Gyro's Time Coupe. Through sheer luck, they come across Asterix, the Gaul whose stories are the basis of a famous comic series back home… Donald and the nephews can't resist the temptation to bring him and Obelix to the present to meet some of their fans. Meanwhile, Asterix himself is looking for a good birthday present for the chief, Vitalstatistix.

Behind the scenes

This story was first published in 2007 in the French anniversary homage book Astérix et ses amis, an anthology hardcover book where many famous comic creators were invited to publish short tribute-stories to Asterix.

The presence of the Time Coupe ties the story into the continuity of The Time Machine.
