Scrooge McDuck Wikia

Smarter Than The Toughies is a comic story written by Lars Jensen and drawn by Daniel Branca. It features Donald Duck, Whitewater Duck, Scrooge McDuck and Douglas McDuck.


Douglas McDuck and Whitewater Duck, and Scrooge McDuck and Donald Duck, compete in a "sourdough contest". Scrooge (and Donald) keep winning thanks to their wits, enraging Douglas and Whitewater who think the sourdoughs should only rely on raw brawn and determination.
