Description

Donald Duck stumbles upon fantastical flying shoes in an antique shop, and attempts to use them for advertising work. Things don't go as planned and the Beagle Boys end up in possession of the artifacts…

Behind the scenes

This story was first published in March of 1969 in Donald Duck #124. It was reprinted in Donald Duck #242, as well as in the Australian Donald Duck #154.

The story seemingly identifies 176-167, a member of the iconic Beagle Boys trio usually seen in Duckburg, as "Deadhead-167". However, this link is made nowhere else, and it seems Deadhead must be a separate character who happens to share a serial number with the classic Beagle.

The name of the story is a play on Flight of the Bumbleduck, the famous musical piece.
