Donald Duck is leaving for the navy, and, thus, leaves Huey, Dewey and Louie Duck to live with their Uncle Scrooge. However, it is not because one member of their usual adventure team is missing that Scrooge isn't looking for a lost treasure as usual… This time, he has his eyes set on the Treasure of the Golden Sun, a fantastic loot left behind by a pre-columbian civilization. Unfortunately, immortal conquistador El Capitan is also looking for the treasure and will stop at nothing to find it after all these centuries, even if it means associating with the Beagle Boys to do Scrooge and the kids in! But our heroes are not alone in this quest that spans lost cities, golden galleons and oppressed sentient penguins, as they are joined with clumsy pilot Launchpad McQuack, no-nonsense butler and nurse Duckworth and Mrs Beakley, and the adorable Webby Vanderquack.
