I called you boys because I'm worried about that money level!
Genre
anthropomorphic-funny animals
Characters
Uncle Scrooge; Donald Duck; Huey; Dewey; Louie; Gyro Gearloose
Synopsis
Scrooge is upset that the money level in the Money Bin is slowly declining from 99 feet. He loans Donald $50 to find an investment that will bring in enough money to raise the money level. Donald spends the $50 at an auction on a trunk that is full of Easter Island figurines. The Junior Woodchuck's manual says that natives of Christmas Island think the figures bring good luck, so Donald and the nephews hitch a ride on Scrooge's plane to Christmas Island. They set up a trade in figurines from Christmas Island to Easter Island and vice versa and Scrooge makes enough money to enjoy life again.
