The Clock Plot is a comic story written by Vic Lockman, penciled by Tony Strobl and inked by Steve Steere. It features Donald Duck, Huey, Dewey and Louie Duck, Brer Rabbit's Nephews, Scrooge McDuck, James Wadly, and, in his debut, Seth Duck. It also mentions Brer Rabbit.
Ashamed of not being a hero like his ancestor Seth Duck, Donald tries to exploit Madam Mim's fortune-telling to prevent a catastrophe that hasn't happened yet — namely, an attempt by a business rival to sabotage the unveiling of a new clock funded by his uncle Scrooge. However, while the initial plan might be sound, Donald's attempts to make his feat look as impressive and heroic as possible may well end up hampering his own efforts…
