Of all stories I read during the 5 years I collected Disney comics in my childhood, this short, decent read is the one I found republished the most times. Not unfairly, though. Its plot is quite interesting and it makes a good story to end a volume, a good read to relax you after a long, complicated adventure with Scrooge McDuck.
An interesting crossover between Duckburg (Beagle Boys) and Mouseton (Super Goofy and Chief O Hara).
The Beagle Boys are caught and taken to jail by Super Goofy for the umpenteenth time. Soon, someone visits them in their cell. It's the author of a book that records all people who have done something at least 1000 times (a parody version of the Guiness Book I presume). He intends to include the Beagle Boys in his new edition, much to their delight of course, until, at the last moment, he realizes they've been arrested only 999 times!
Determined to meet the 'qualifications' before the book is published, the Beagle Boys have less than 24 hours left to escape and be arrested again. So they escape and begin a series of minor crimes, waiting for Super Goofy to come and get them.
However, Super Goofy runs away without catching them! The reason? He wants to help his friend, O Hara, who has arrested 996 criminals so far, be included in the book.
In the end, seeing that Super Goofy will not chase them no matter what they do, the Beagle Boys decide to forget about the book and go to rob Scrooge McDuck (it seems Duckburg and Mouseton are united into one city in this story's universe). It is at that moment that O Hara bursts into their lair and arrests them.
And so, both the chief and the Beagle Boys make it to the book's new edition.
All's well that ends well, huh? Wrong! You see, the Beagle Boys' name was mistyped in the printed edition of the book, rendering all their efforts for naught!
Okay, that disappointing touch in the end of this funny story was uncalled for, IMO. But it's still a fun piece.
