Uncle Scrooge and the Wonderful Wishing Crown! (Zio Paperone e la Corona dei Desideri in the original Italian) is a comic story written by Vito Stabile and drawn by Alessandro Perina. It features Scrooge McDuck, Donald Duck, Huey, Dewey and Louie Duck, Malcolm McDuck, Elvira Duck, Dickie Duck, Gladstone Gander, Gus Goose, Daisy Duck, Fethry Duck, the debuts of the Reincarnating Turtle, Captain Alvarado and Cachorro, and minor appearances in flashback form by a Square Chicken, the invisible Diamond Dick and Yellow Beak.
Scrooge McDuck, in quest of a new mythical treasure — the Wonderful Wishing Crown — accidentally makes his nephews disappear while bringing a duo of fearsome 16th century pirates back to life! But perhaps, with some generosity, some fighting spirit, and the help of his also-time-displaced ancestor Malcolm McDuck, Scrooge can still make things right… even if he has to give up the Crown for it.
- Scrooge's memories in the birthday sequence correspond to four of Carl Barks's paintings.
