Many years after the first “Pirate Gold” adventure, the parrot Yellow Beak shows up on Donald Duck’s doorstep with a new treasure map, leading to a new “Pirate Gold” adventure. Only this time, Uncle Scrooge is in for a piece of the action… and the Beagle Boys want all the “action” for themselves.

Indexer Notes

This story is a sequel to the original 1942 story “Donald Duck Finds Pirate Gold” by Carl Barks and Jack Hannah, from Four Color (Dell, 1942 Series) #9 October 1942 – and its many international reprints. The character of Yellow Beak transcended the “Pirate Gold” tale of Barks and Hannah (adapted from an unproduced Walt Disney Studio cartoon), having similar treasure hunting adventures with such characters as The Seven Dwarfs, Peter Pan, and even Walter Lantz’s Woody Woodpecker. Page four, panel four gives an oblique nod to those “non-duck-continuity” stories, when Yellow Beak names some of his former shipmates as “Young Peter”, “Sharp Woodward”, and “The Seagoin’ Seven”.
