Both the Barks story and the Vicar follow-up were published in Holland in the
80s, two years apart. In the Barks story, it would last 8 years before the
micro-ducks could return. In the Vicar story however, they stated that the
micro-ducks invented a faster way to travel...

I hope _not_.

BTW: In Holland, they have made a very interesting story about the Junior
Woodchuck's Guide (term?). The nephews try to find out who _wrote_ it...
(I won't tell how the story ends).
