en   An epilogue of sorts to the “The Life and Times” series, this tale takes Scrooge on a whirlwind tour of his life via his dreams—with the Beagle Boys hot on his heels! A stolen Gyro Gearloose invention allows those larcenous Beagle Boys entry into Scrooge's dreams, where they hope to pilfer the combinations to his vault doors. Desperate to rescue him, Gyro and the boys send Donald in after the Beagles, fighting his way across his uncle’s dreamscape to save his sanity. The Beagles expect Scrooge to be dreaming about wallowing in his money. To their dismay, his dreams are about all the magnificent adventures he underwent to get that rich, and even four of them can’t tackle the King of the Klondike, the Master of the Mississippi, the Vigilante of Pizen Bluff—Scrooge McDuck in his prime. As the old duck dreams of his youth, Donald is reunited with his long lost mother, Hortense, when she was a child. This story is included in the "Life and Times" collection because in those dreams Donald and the Beagles encounter the young Scrooge we saw throughout the original “Life and Times” episodes and in the chapters added later.
