Scrooge McDuck Wikia

The Deep Sea Deed is a comic story written by Mark Evanier and drawn by Kay Wright. It features Moby Duck, Scrooge McDuck, the Beagle Boys, Gus Goose, Grandma Duck and Gyro Gearloose. It also mentions Great-Grandpappy Beagle and features the debuts of Muk-duk, Beegul and Fido.


Moby Duck unearths a prehistoric tablet that soon sends the world spiraling in chaos, as it turns out to be an ancient deed that puts all the water in the world in the Beagle Boys' possession! The only way to reverse that catastrophe is to travel back in time and buy the water back from Beegul, the Beagle Boy ancestor who bought the water in the first place… It's a doozy of a time-travel tale!


  • The newspaper calls Gyro Gearloose a “noted genius”.
  • Gyro's latest invention is a Tele-Time Viewer, which which he is able to watch past events as if watching television. He has used it to at long last become the first man to decipher prehistoric hieroglyphs.
  • Fido, a dinosaur, is somehow still alive the year 214,200 B.C.
  • Using parts of the Tele-Time Viewer, Gyro creates a time machine functioning on the basis of turning the travelers into electrons and then shooting them along the Time Channel via an Electron Gun.
