Synopsis:
Donald and the boys face a very dismal Christmas until a special invitation comes for them to spend the holiday at the mountain cabin of their wealthy uncle, Scrooge McDuck. But, unknown to them, Scrooge's invitation comes with strings attached.

Notes:
This is a reprinting of the very first appearance of Scrooge from Dell Comics' Four-Color Comics #178. Scrooge was only intended as a one-shot character but quickly became a popular addition to the Duck family line (with a few minor changes to the character's personality). In this first appearance, Scrooge's personality is very much in line with his Dickens' namesake.
