Under Siege! is a comic story written by Pietro Zemelo and drawn by Vito Stabile for the 70th anniversary of Scrooge McDuck's debut, and later also used to mark the 50th issue of IDW's run of American Uncle Scrooge comics. It features Scrooge McDuck, Gyro Gearloose, Albert Quackmore, Grandpa Beagle and the Beagle Boys (including Intellectual-176), John D. Rockerduck, Jeeves, Magica De Spell, Mayor Hogwilde, the Little Helper. In their debuts, Phil, Mary and their son, Rob the Ruthless, Tight-Lipped Tom, Ratface, Gyro Gearloose's Coffeemaker Pouring Soda For People Who Hate Coffee and Edmund McEdil appear and Tony Sweetstealer is mentioned.


When he was a young boy, Scrooge McDuck slept in the lower drawer of a cupboard. As his fortune grew, so did his beds' sizes. Taken to its logical extreme, this means that the bed Scrooge sleeps in now is as large as a ballroom (and made of the best springs around). And one night, his bed begins to quiver and shake, and Scrooge draws the conclusion that an intruder (a thief?) is walking on the other end of the acre-wide mattress. He calls "the world's greatest detective", Sir Surelock, to guard him. Surelock is fast to find out the answer, and it is far from what Scrooge expected…
