In this parody of 'Around the World In Eighty Days', it is Uncle Scrooge rather than Phileas Fogg who makes a bet with other members of his club. In this case it is the Billionaires Club, and he bets that he can go around the world in eight days - without spending a penny! He sets off not with Passepartout, but with Donald Duck, and they travel by air - in an improvised hot-air balloon - rather than by sea. In India, Donald's choice of transport is a sacred cow rather than an elephant. This sacrilege leads to his arrest, and he then has to be rescued by Uncle Scrooge. The parody concludes with Uncle Scrogge's arrival back at the Billionaires Club within the time limit. However, he loses the bet because Donald took a 20-cent bus ride!

Rest not
Life is sweeping by
go and dare before you die.
Something mighty and sublime,
leave behind to conquer time.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
