Scrooge McDuck Wikia

The Stuff of Dreams is a comic story written by Pat and Carol McGreal and drawn by Cèsar Ferioli Pelaez. It features Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, and, in his debut, Doctor Winx.


Mickey Mouse signs up for a "dream study" with scientist Doctor Winx, little knowing that Winx is actually a mad scientist and criminal, behind the string of jewel robberies that have been plaguing Mouseton — and as often with mad scientists, Winx has a pretty “unique” modus operandi


  • Winx invented the Dream Syphon, which allows him to enter Dream Realms, capture dream constructs there, and then release the beasts into the real world.


  • A Nightmare on Mickey's Street (2010), also written by the McGreals, is a sequel to the story, where Doctor Winx attempts to inflict revenge upon Mickey for besting him here.
