Tidal wave! Oh, no! Whoa! Me money! Uncle Scrooge? Huh? What? You were having a nightmare in the middle of the day.
Aye! And what a horrible, uh, day-mare it was, darling.
What were you dreaming about, Uncle Scrooge? Earthquakes.
There was another one yesterday.
But none of them were anywhere near Duckburg.
They were in my dream.
Under my money bin, to be exact.
Ah, dreams don't mean anything, Uncle Scrooge - unless they come true.
Aye, and that's why I have Gyro Gearloose dreaming up some safety measures.
You were right to be worried, Mr.
McDuck.
I knew it, I knew it! The Fudderman Fault runs right under your money bin.
Oh Not funny, Gyro.
Ha ha.
Cheer up, Mr.
McDuck.
My solution is quite simple, really.
A gigantic shock absorber in the center of Fudderman's Fault.
How's it going, men? We're four miles down, Mr.
Gearloose.
Oh, they should reach the Fudderman Fault any moment.
- Gangway! - Move it, move it! Hey, lunch break isn't for two hours.
We heard We heard v-v-voi-v-voices down there, Mr.
McDuck.
Strange, g-g-ghostly voices.
Nonsense.
There aren't any v-v-v-voices down there.
Your tunnel is haunted, Mr.
McDuck.
Here.
You finish digging it.
Nothing's going to stop this project! If I hear any voices, I'm going to give them a good talking-to.
Man the winch and lower away, lads.
I'll keep in touch with this.
Testing.
One billion one, one billion two.
Coming in loud and clear, Mr.
McDuck.
More speed, Gyro.
Uh, yes, sir, Mr.
McDuck.
Uh, more speed, boys.
Good, Gyro.
I'm going to get Oh! We're losing contact.
Can you still hear me, Mr.
McDuck? Slower, Gyro! I'm out of control! Whoa! We've got to go after him! This will be our brake.
OK! Here we go, boys! Oops! Curse me kilts! Yow! Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh! We're coming to the end of the tracks! Yowee! Whoa! Whoa-oa-a! Oh, no! Hang on! Yow! Whoa, whoa! I sure love a good roller coaster ride, don't you, lads? Oh! Hit the brakes! Whew! Wow! Will you look at that? It's bigger than the world! That sounded like an earthquake.
I didn't know they could whistle.
They can't.
Whoa! Oof! The brake broke! Whoa! Bless me bagpipes.
I could get lost down here forever.
Huh? Say, what in blazes is going on here? Hey! Stop that! It hurts! Brigadoon! Terra-Firmians don't like being poked.
Terra-Firmians? Is that what you are? Isn't everybody? We'd love to stay and chat, but we want to get good seats for the games.
Doesn't everybody? But I need help! Hey, don't roll away when I'm talking to you.
Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! All right, team, one more practice roll.
And make it good.
Go! We're as ready as we'll ever be.
Let's roll.
- Come on! - Let's roll! Can I try, Coach? Can I? Huh? Can I? I told you a hundred times, kid.
You're much too small to roll and crash.
Aw, just one, Coach, please? I can do it! Ah, all right, all right.
If you promise to stop pestering me.
Yippee! Well, like I said, kid, you haven't got the size for it.
Whoa! Whoa! Yaah! That was an illegal roll and crash.
No machines allowed.
Whoa, I must have landed on my head.
How about you guys? You try that in the Great Games, and the judges will roll you right out the door.
Aw, don't feel bad.
They won't let me roll in the games either.
Games? Yeah.
Everybody's going to be there.
Hey, maybe even Uncle Scrooge.
Can you take us there? Sure.
Follow me.
I demand to speak with someone in authority! The king! King? Yes, the king will do nicely.
Where do I find him? That's his exalted Terra-Firminess.
I officially declare the Great Games open.
Don't push! What have we gotten ourselves into? The Great Games, of course.
Yay, they're about to start! Somehow the Super Bowl won't seem so super after this! Here comes the king! And he's carrying the Crack Pot Trophy.
Oh, I always dreamed of rolling in the Great Games for the old Crack Pot.
Hey, look! Yeah, I see him, I see him! He's all right! Hey, Uncle Scrooge! Hey, up here, Uncle Scrooge! Over here! Be careful! Now, where did that thing roll off to? Fellow Firmians, here is the object of all our endeavors.
Crack Pot! Crack Pot! Crack Pot! Crack Pot! Crack Pot! Let the games begin! Sorry, you can't go up there.
I demand to speak to your king.
It's the opening roll! They're shaking up the whole place! Your games are the cause of earthquakes! Yeah, that's what it takes to win the Crack Pot Trophy.
Gonna be some perfect tens today! Do you have any idea what your games are doing? Sure! They give us pride in ourselves, team spirit.
A chance to come together in Firmi-hood.
They're causing earthquakes, you blockheads.
I lost sight of him! - There he is! - What's he doing? Stop the games! Stop the games! In the name of Scrooge McDuck Arrest that intruder! Now you've done it, stranger.
- Are you taking me to the hospital? - No, we're taking you to jail! They're taking him out of the stadium! Come on! But you're gonna miss the games! Now we're gonna miss the rest of the games! Yeah.
Guards never get to have any fun.
Ha ha ha! Sounds like one of the rolling teams rolled right out of the stadium! What's that? Lads! Let's get out of here, Uncle Scrooge! Uncle Scrooge, what are you doing? If we don't stop those games, my money bin will be destroyed.
I'm going to take their stupid trophy, and if that doesn't stop them, nothing will.
Hey, fellas, I've been looking all over for you.
Better stay away from us.
We don't want to get you in any trouble.
Trouble? What kind of trouble? All right, lads, as soon as we reach the king's seat, I'll grab the trophy.
Hey! You can't take the Crack Pot Trophy! You'll ruin the games! Just what I had in mind.
Out of the way, you little bowling ball.
Hey, look out! - Look out! - Whoa! A solo roll-o! It's never been done.
I did it! I rolled in the Great Games! Now it's our turn, lads.
Lean left! Oh! They're gonna steal the Crack Pot! Stop them! They're gaining on us! Quick, in here! They went right past us.
It's hopeless.
We can't get back up into the maze of tunnels that leads to the surface.
I think I know something that just might do it.
Hurry! Here come the bad guys! Hold on! It's gonna blow! My top hat! They got away with our trophy! We can't have the games without the old Crack Pot.
Fellow Firmians, we have a new trophy! Ooh, the earthquakes have stopped.
It's up to us to go in after them.
Mr.
McDuck! Boys! Hi, everybody.
We thought the earthquakes got you.
There won't be any more earthquakes.
It's heading for my money bin! Hurry, Duckworth! Hurry! Faster, Duckworth! Faster! Faster, Duckworth! Faster! Oh, dear.
I have it to the floor, sir.
Stop! Stop! No, Uncle Scrooge! There's nothing you can do! My money! All my money! Oh Wiped out.
Finished.
Ruined.
Oh! What will we do with all this worthless litter, your Terra-Firminess? We can't even move in this mess.
I have it! We'll play one final roll and crash.
Uncle Scrooge? I'm a poor, miserable duck worth nothing.
Aw! You still have us, Uncle Scrooge.
But most importantly, we still have you, Mr.
McDuck.
I made a fortune once, and, by gum, I can do it again.
It'll just take me a little time.
Yippee! It happened quicker than I thought! For he's a jolly good roller For he's a jolly good roller For he's a jolly good roller Which nobody can deny Ha! Where are the next Great Games going to be, your Firminess? To the west, under a place called Califermy.
