Synopsis
Scrooge is lecturing the Junior Woodchucks on the follies of gold fever when the first astronauts return from the Moon with the news that gold is thick there. The ducks build their own small rocket and go to the Moon, where Scrooge sets up the rocket as a store selling everything at gold rush prices. A villain named Dan McShrew lures the ducks away from the rocket and leaves them to die, leading to a parody of Robert W. Service's "The Shooting of Dan McGrew."
