Backstage: At the end of 1996 Barks worked on a new Donald Duck comic book story, called "Somewhere in Nowhere" (28 pages). The story idea, by Barks, was worked out in travel to Orlando. Bill Grandey and Kathy Morby of the in 1998 defuncted Carl Barks Studio, hired freelancer John Lustig to put Barks' gags and story together with dialogue. Pat Block provided the art.

Pencil: Romano Scarpa
Script: Romano Scarpa
Hero: Uncle Scrooge
Publication date: 1976, March 28 (Europe, Italy)

Pages: 40
Based on: siren idea

Additional credits: Part 2 of the story has been published in Topolino (Libretto) 1062

Description: Gyro produces money perfume for the Beagle Boys who give it to Brigitta. Their plan is simple: once Scrooge will be engaged with Brigitta they'll have the chance to attack the money bin. But Donald "saves" Scrooge from the marriage with Brigitta.

Surviving material:

Status: Apparently, Barks' sketch has surfaced? See siren idea

Appearances: Beagle Boys, Donald Duck, Gyro Gearloose, Huey Dewey and Louie, Brigitta McBridge, Uncle Scrooge.

Backstage: The original Barks sketch with the idea got lost, before it was printed anywhere. Scarpa has tried to recreate it as close as he could and it is published in a Italian book on Scarpa by Luca Boschi, Leonardo Gori and Andrea Sani, as well as in "Uncle Scrooge" No. 242, April 1990. (Another recreation of this sketch, also by Scarpa, has been published in the "French Picsou Magazine - 60 anniversaire de Donald.")

Notes: As far as known, this story has never been reprinted outside of Italy. It is mentioned as "The Golden Bunch" in "Uncle Scrooge" No. 242.
