Magica invents a potion that, when sprayed on a person's face, makes that face look like the face at which the person last looked. Learning of the potion, Scrooge flees from Duckburg with his Old Number One Dime and hides in an unknown jungle valley that is populated by a strange race of faceless people. Magica follows him there and sprays his face.
