Scrooge McDuck Wikia

The Oil Pirates is a comic story written by Frank Ridgeway and drawn by Jaime Diaz Studio. Part of the classic DuckTales series, it features Scrooge McDuck, Huey, Dewey and Louie Duck, Webby Vanderquack, Mrs Beakley, Launchpad McQuack, and the Beagle Boys.


Scrooge McDuck has taken his entourage aboard his new yacht (the S.S. Glitter O'Gold) for her maiden voyage to inspect some of Scrooge's oil rigs. Once they arrive, family disputes must once again make way for sheer high-flying adventures as they uncover sinister doings by the Beagle Boys!

Behind the Scenes

The Oil Pirates was first printed in October of 1988 in DuckTales #9. It has only ever been reprinted English in the United Kingdom's Mickey Mouse and Friends #16.

The story features ordinary, nondescript Beagle Boys rather than the ordinary DuckTales gang of individualized Beagles.
