The Time Tub is a sentient time machine created in the 2017 Continuum by Gyro Gearloose, that universe's counterpart to the original, non-sentient Time Tub.


This version of the Time Tub turned evil shortly after its creation, like most of Doctor Gearloose's inventions. Nevertheless, he was seemingly able to get it mostly under control at some point between September of 2017 and May of 2019, however, and used it for a jaunt into the Old West town of Gumption, where it broke down, forcing Gyro to remain there and participate in a western adventure fighting the younger self of John D. Rockerduck alongside a younger Scrooge and Goldie and town sheriff Marshall Cabrera, the ancestor of Gyro's lab assistant Fenton Crackshell-Cabrera. At the conclusion of the adventure, Gyro finally got the Tub working again and flew it back to 2019, when he crashed into the living room of McDuck Manor, coincidentally right after the older Scrooge finished telling his grandnephew Louie about his adventure in Gumption.

Behind the scenesEdit

This version of the Time Tub was first mentioned in the DuckTales 2017 episode The Great Dime Chase, and finally played a part in The Outlaw Scrooge McDuck two years later. According to Frank Angones and the Suspenders of Disbelief, it will be seen again.
