It is Chrismas Day, 1947. A bitter Scrooge McDuck, who has been living alone in his mansion for years, invites his four nephews Donald, Huey, Dewey, and Louie to his manor for a feast. Donald repeatedly states that he does not believe Scrooge's tales of adventure or of how rich he is. Scrooge takes the four to his Money Bin to show them all of his money, but while he is there, the new generation of Beagle Boys, led by Blackheart Beagle, break into the bin and begin to rob it. Scrooge uses mementos of his past adventures to defeat the Beagle Boys, causing Donald to believe him at last. This adventure, along with Huey, Dewey, and Louie's convincing, inspires him to adventure again, but this time with his family.
