The Toogs was an ancient people and nation.

History and DescriptionEdit

In Ancient Times, the Toogs were a fierce and warlike people who occupied a stronghold in the middle of a nondescript Mesopotamian desert. They sought to conquer and ransack the nearby city of Tootum-Too, and, after years of war, thanks to a Trojan-Horse-style trick, the Toogs gained entry into the city and destroyed it.

In 1982, Scrooge McDuck and Gyro Gearloose travelled aboard the Gyro-Plane in search of the ruins of Tootum-Too, hoping to find forgotten treasure preserved in its walls. An unforeseen interaction of the Gyro-Plane with another of Gyro's inventions, the Terrascope, catapulted the two Duckburgers backwards through time, to the day just before the historical fall of Tootum-Too. Using their historical foreknowledge, Gyro and Scrooge changed the outcome of that war, letting Tootum-Too survive into modern times.

Behind the scenesEdit

The Toogs are the antagonists of the 1982 story Trip to Tootum-Too.
