The Return of Rebo, originally printed as Paperino e il Returno di Rebo (which would be translated as Donald Duck and the Return of Rebo), is a comic story written and drawn by Luciano Bottaro. A sequel to Bottaro's then-35-years-old classic Uncle Scrooge's Money Rocket, it features Donald Duck, Scrooge McDuck, Huey, Dewey and Louie Duck, Rebo and his Generals, Gladstone Gander, Saturnian Cats, a Weepasaur and the Jovian Fisherman. Grandma Duck is mentioned, a puppet with the likeness of Mickey Mouse is prominently featured, and a flashback also shows the Donald-Robots.
An attempt by Scrooge McDuck at a publicity stunt involving aliens unhappily coincides with the revenge scheme of Rebo, the indefatigable and egotistical Supreme Leader of the planet Saturn whom Donald Duck defeated thirty-five years earlier. Both ducks, whisked off to Rebo's humongous mothership in a Saturnian Saucer, discover… a giant toy assembly line. But not all is not as it seems!
- The Duck family, the Saturnians and the Jovians all remember and recall the events of Uncle Scrooge's Money Rocket (1960).
