en   Scrooge owns a restaurant in a Mexican resort, and hires a local guy (Pedro Mendoza) to dive from a steep cliff as an Acapulco-style attraction. The guy misteriously disappears, and the obvious (?) substitute is poor Donald, who is not enthusiastic at all about the idea. As a "motivator", enter Gedeone the goat, who "gently" pushes DD from the cliff top. Gedeone also sees that Donald cannot escape from his hotel room until the next day's performance, during which Donald disappears, too. It turns out that both Mendoza and Donald have been kidnapped by the Beagle Boys, who want to use their diving abilities to recuperate a sunken treasure in a nearby cliff. Gedeone, who has become fond of Donald, saves the day - and also punishes Uncle Scrooge for his greed, when he doesn't want to share the treasure with Donald and Mendoza. (by Cacou, history)
