Donald Duck Finds Pirate Gold

Donald Duck Finds Pirate Gold is a comic book story starring Donald Duck that was originally printed in Donald Duck Four Color #9 in 1942. In this story Donald and his nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie meet a parrot named Yellow Beak and they wind up searching for the lost treasure of Henry Morgan. Unfortunately for them Black Pete wants that treasure too.

This story was the first duck story done by Carl Barks, even though Jack Hannah did some of the story too. This story introduced the comic book personalities of Donald Duck and his nephews.

The storyline was originally used as a script for an unreleased Mickey Mouse cartoon where Mickey, Donald, and Goofy meet Yellow Beak and encounter Pete but sadly the cartoon was never released. Barks erased Mickey and Goofy, making Donald the main character and replacing them with his nephews.
