Disney Duck Stories and Vikings

We already know that next week’s DuckTales (2017) episode will have a Vikings theme.

The Rumble for Ragnarok” episode description:

Dewey must embrace his inner heel to beat the beloved Viking wrestling champ Jormungandr in a battle royale for the fate of the Earth.

*Kristofer Hivju (“Game of Thrones”) guest stars as Jormungandr, alongside cast members David Tennant (“Doctor Who”) as Scrooge McDuck, Danny Pudi (“Community”) as Huey, Ben Schwartz (“Parks and Recreation”) as Dewey, Bobby Moynihan (“Saturday Night Live”) as Louie, Kate Micucci (“Garfunkel and Oates”) as Webby Vanderquack, Beck Bennett (“Saturday Night Live”) as Launchpad McQuack and Toks Olagundoye (“Castle”) as Mrs. Beakley.

DuckTales Season 3 Episode 7, The Rumble for Ragnarok, will air at 9:30am eastern time on Disney XD/DisneyNOW.

This is not the Duck family’s first encounter with Vikings:

Carl Bark’s “The Golden Helmet”

The Golden Helmet is definitely a favorite for Carl Barks fans. It was first published in Four Color #408 in July 1952.

Viking legend tells that Olaf the Blue landed on the coast of North America and claimed the land for himself. Donald, who is working at Duckburg Museum, discovers a map that could lead him and his nephews to the Golden Helmet. Whomever possesses the Golden Helmet will become the owner of all of North America; however, they are not the only ones that seek this valuable treasure.

Could this be one of the lost treasures documented in Isabella Finch’s book?

You can find this great Carl Barks story and many other classic Carl Barks stories in Fantagraphics’ The Complete Carl Barks Disney Library Vol 11: Christmas For Shacktown.
