|Behind the Scenes|
The Micro Ducks are an alien species from the DuckTales Universe.
Resembling humanoid ducks, they stand no taller than an ant.
The Micro Ducks planet were suffering a famine and were in need of food. Gyro manage to get in contact with them and relayed them to Scrooge McDuck, who possessed surplus of grain. However in the manner of payment, their jewels that they planned to give him were specks of dust in size. To compensate for the size differential the Micro Ducks used the Molecular Manipulator to change the size of the jewels. When they left the Micro Ducks accidentally left the device at the McDuck Manor. Scrooge eager to test the machine out broke it and shrunk him, Webby and his nephews. Scrooge attempted to reach Gyro for help, but by the time they returned the aliens had recovered the device and left. While initially despairing, Launchpad had inadvertently caught the aliens in tape while he was doing chores. Using their help they restore Scrooge and his friends to their normal size.
