The Beagle Boys
The Beagle Boys visit their grandfather, Blackheart Beagle, in prison to celebrate his birthday. Blackheart uses this chance to inform his grandsons of having found an original blueprint of the Money Bin, showing a secret passageway to Scrooge McDuck's money. Blackheart remains in prison, but his grandsons are free to try out the plan.
While Scrooge is away, the Beagle Boys sneak into the Money Bin using Blackheart's plan. However, by twists of fate - mostly caused by the Beagle Boys' personal lust for treasure, prunes, or personal fame - they get caught in situations where they're mostly unable to even move, without risking alerting the police, or personal injury.
After an extremely long and stressing work day, Scrooge comes home late in the evening. He waves good night to a painting of Glittering Goldie, the woman he fell in love with in his youth but failed to ever form a relationship with, and goes to bed. In his tired stupor, he mistakes a Beagle Boy for a lamp. He later realises his mistake and calls the police, who arrest the Beagle Boys.
Back in prison, Blackheart Beagle hears of this, and curses his grandsons for losing a fight to the Money Bin itself, when Scrooge McDuck wasn't even there.
This story was created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Beagle Boys and The Money Bin.
One of The Beagle Boys mentions that the Candy Striped Ruby will be theirs. That is a reference to The Status Seeker where they steal the Candy Striped Ruby from Scrooge.
One of the Beagles reads a Duck Tales comic when he is in the bathroom despite the fact that Duck Tales doesn't exist in the Duck Universe.
The plans for the Money Bin found in the architect's office are signed "K.D.Rosa", which is Don Rosa's real name, although he mentioned in the same story that the architect's name is Frank Lloyd Drake.
