Episode Info

From the Confidential Casefiles of Agent 22! is the seventeenth episode of the Disney XD animated series, DuckTales.


Webby learns how Scrooge and Mrs. Beakley first met while she helps Scrooge rescue her granny from the clutches of Beakley's rival spy Black Heron.


While the nephews are watching an Ottoman Empire marathon, Webby attempts to bond with Scrooge. Mrs. Beakley, while doing dishes in the kitchen, is attacked by a hooded assailant whom she eventually recognizes as Black Heron. She is knocked out by her attacker, and Webby and Scrooge later enter the kitchen to find it in disarray. Scrooge dismisses Webby's suspicion that Donald was attempting to cook again, as he's still locked in the cupboard following his last effort. He then comes across a black feather, which he clearly recognizes.

A flashback shows a younger Beakley in S.H.U.S.H. headquarters, where she is to receive a debriefing from director Ludwing von Drake but has already familiarized herself with the mission details. However, to her dismay, Ludwig informs her that she'll be working with Scrooge McDuck, fresh off his defeat of Jack the Tripper.



  • As one looks at certain things, one can see a can of pep soda, which was part of the classic Ducktales, 'The Big Flub' which had included things like bubble gum
  • The episode makes several nods to the 1980s Disney Afternoon show Adventures of the Gummi Bears:
    • As Scrooge McDuck talks about the lost page of the 'Great Book' one can see from the silhouettes that the character are the actual Gummi Bears.
    • When the Black Heron asks Bentina Beakley what is the formula for the ancient, after threatening Webby Wanderquack, it is the same recipe as in Adventures of the Gummi Bears.
    • The Castle of Dunwyn was featured as the main setting of the show.
    • Black Heron says her soldiers will be “bouncing here and there and everywhere.” The same phrase is part of the Adventures of the Gummi Bears theme song.
  • Black Heron's Robots bear a striking resemblance to The Iron Giant, a fictional Robot character from the Steven Spielberg Movie of the same Name.
  • Webby was seen keeping one of the bouncing potions created by Black Heron by the very end of the episode, but as of now the whereabouts of the potion are still unknown.
