The Outlaw Scrooge McDuck is the tenth episode of Season 2 of DuckTales 2017, a television cartoon episode. It features the 2017 Continuum versions of Scrooge McDuck, Louie Duck, Goldie O'Gilt, Gyro Gearloose, Johnny and Randy Empire and, in their debuts, Marshall Cabrera, John D. Rockerduck and Jeeves. A prototype of Gizmoduck is seen, and Fenton Crackshell-Cabrera himself is obliquely referenced. The Time Tub is seen but gives no sign of sentience.
Louie Duck's lack of grit in pursuing his dream of founding “Louie, Inc.” leads Scrooge McDuck to recount a tale from his youth: the time he, Goldie O'Gilt, Marshall Cabrera (ancestor of Fenton) and an inventor from the future teamed up to save the small mining town of Gumption from swindling businessman John D. Rockerduck!
- Johnny Empire is feuding with his brother on Ottoman Empire.
- Gyro Gearloose accidentally time-traveled to the Old West using the Time Tub. There, he builds Steam-Powered Steeds for our heroes to ride, out of which Marshall Cabrera later puts together a crude, steampunk version of the Gizmosuit.
- Scrooge McDuck asks Louie Duck how his company “Louie, Inc.” has been going since Storkules in Duckburg (2018).
- Louie is also still grossed out by imagining Scrooge partaking in romantic activities, as he was in The Golden Lagoon of White Agony Plains (2018).
- Goldie O'Gilt refers to Scrooge as the Buckaroo of the Badlands.
- The 2017 Continuum Time Tub was first mentioned in The Great Dime Chase (2017).
- As happened to the classic universe's Scrooge in The Cowboy Captain of the Cutty Sark (1998), special emphasis is put on a younger Scrooge first having cause to put on a top hat, for now as part of a disguise.
- The subsequent episode Happy Birthday, Doofus Drake (2019) follows through on the idea of Goldie O'Gilt becoming Louie's mentor.
- John D. Rockerduck's deed to the town of Gumption is signed “Rocker Duck”, a rather egregious misspelling of the villain's name which makes it seem as though he belongs to the Duck family.
- While sitting on one of the Steam-Powered Steeds, Marshall Cabrera's legs briefly turn brown.
