-Faster, Launchpad, faster!

- Slower, Launchpad, slower!

Launchpad, is this a stunt

you learned in flight school?

- Flight school?

- You mean you never took flying lessons?

- I took a crash course.

- Now he tells me.

- Nosedive!

- Cool.

Oh, boy, look at that!

There's the dig!

Did they say what they'd found?

Aye. A hidden chamber.

You think it might have the treasure

of Collie Baba and his 40 thieves?

After all this, I'm not getting my hopes up.

We're making our final approach.

Put seat backs

in their upright position.

Just put the plane

in an upright position.

Please remain seated until

the plane has come to a complete stop.

Landing gear down.

Launchpad, look what you've done

to these ancient ruins.

It could have been worse.

It could have been something new.

Hurry, Mr McDuck.

We've found something.

Bless my bagpipes.

An engraving of Collie Baba.

This could well be the treasure chest

of the greatest thief who ever lived.

Let's see.

He stole clothes?

Nothing but old robes.

40 years of searching and I end up

with Collie Baba's dirty laundry.

At least the box is pretty,

Uncle Scrooge.

There's something in this pocket.

The seal of Collie Baba.

It's a map.

Perhaps this dig

is not a lost cause after all.

That's right. A treasure map

written in Collie Baba's own hand.

At last, after all these centuries,

the lamp will be mine again.


You will become more powerful than

locomotive, more faster than speedy bull.

You will leap all buildings

in a single town.

And you shall finally be rewarded

for your dubious assistance.

You mean it?

My own mountain of money?

Yes. Now... give it to me.

- Yes... What?

- The map. Give it to me.

The map? That specific map?

Right here, right now?

You didn't steal it?

Too many people. Only one Dijon.

But look what I did steal.

Several billfolds, this dandy pocket watch,

floss, egg-bake nut bar

and two tickets to the feta cheese festival

for you, master.

Maybe you would like the floss?

Did you at least see where the map leads?

Yes, master.

Into the middle of the desert.

- Where the sand burns like a hot kebab.

- But I searched every square inch.

Perhaps this time I'll let Scrooge

do the searching for me.

Smart move, master.

Let him boil out his brains in the sun.

And you shall

accompany him as his guide.

But I have such sensitive skin.

And my brain boils so quickly.

But who needs brains

to be a guide, anyway?

Gee, Mr McD. A plane ride would

have been less turbulent.

According to the map, the cave

of Collie Baba should be right here,

under the gaze of Mount Badude.

- I don't see anything, Uncle Scrooge.

- Not even a mirage.

Maybe we took the wrong turn

at that last sand dune.

Launchpad, Can't you even ride a camel

without crashing it?

It's not my fault.

Humpy here just had a great fall.

He must have hit this lousy rock.

- Ouch! My tootsies.

- It looks like a pint-sized pyramid.

Quackaroonie. It's bigger than it looks.

- I wonder what's inside.

- There's only one way to find out, lads.

Start digging.

If I read these hieroglyphics correctly,

we may have found the entrance.

Look at this.

All right. Let's go.

- Me first.

- After you.

But the camels will be lonesome.

- Think we'll see a mummy?

- My mummy's expecting me.

It's time for my nap.

Careful. Stay close, Webby. No telling

what kind of dangers we may find.

Looks safe to me.

- Check it out.

- Look at that.

It's a Collie Baba booby trap.

What does the Junior Woodchuck

Guide Book say about booby traps?

It says "Stay alert and use your marbles".
