The terries and the fermies are in "Land Beneath the Ground" (US 13).
(Anyone remember how to tell a terry from a fermy?) I don't know if
it's been adapted on DT.

I've seen that one too. I guess it was in Gladstone's DuckTales,
though, and if that's the case I don't have it. Looking through
episode listings of DT one can detect many of the adaptations on the
name, e.g., "Micro Ducks from Outer Space", "Back to the Klondike",
"The Land of Tra-la-la", "The Golden Fleecing" etc. I won't bother
trying to list them all though, as I think there already is such a
The episode listings I have are
(1) A listing of the first 66 episodes, compiled by Christopher E.
Barat as a complement to his article on DuckTales in The Barks
(2) An episode list of DT showed on Disney Afternoon with short
descriptions posted to ranger-list (and r.a.d.?) by "Lucky" Steven
Patrick Calica <spc55721 at uxa.cso.uiuc.edu> now and then. The latest
version I've saved is revision 2.0.0 from June 7. If anyone wants it,

I have it only in a Swedish translation, which won't be of any use for
*** Barks gifs!
There are some Barks gifs available by anonymous ftp from ftp.funet.fi
in /pub/pics/gif/pics/comics/Barks. I haven't seen them, but file
names seem to indicate that many of them are of Barks's oil paintings.
