It’s another tale of how Scrooge earned his next million, and its one that proves why no one is as savvy as capitalizing on trends than Scrooge McDuck! “My Eighth Million” finds Scrooge behind the wheels of a bus transportation service that starts out less-than-promising but soon becomes the hottest ride in town. Then, in “The Golden Eggs,” Scrooge tells Huey, Dewey, and Louie a fairy tale involving him and Donald Duck that leaves the nephews a little skeptical, but highly amused.
