Deep knowledge of cousin Laptley
Billy pulls Willy out of the shower to show him a copy of the petrified wood, which makes the brother unhappy: after all, you can take him off from business only for important reasons – for example, adventures or monsters. Scruge’s old tin can begin to ring very well here: Donald’s cousin Laptley Duck got in touch with a deep-water laboratory and, according to his uncles, he’s a little crazy because all his calls for adventure and incredible discoveries turn out to be the most boring and boring . Thirsting for adventure and discovery, the brothers pass their words past their ears and rush to the caller. Having borrowed the bathyscaphe of Scrooge, they, together with Zigzag, go on a trip to visit their cousin. The search for the laboratory leads them to an abandoned lighthouse in the middle of the ocean, near which the trinity drops anchor. Zigzag immediately calls for a certain Oceanic, and Billy and Willie go upstairs and get acquainted first with Arturo, and then with Laptley himself.
Laptley actually turns out to be a weird guy, just like Billy was once Young Groundhog and loves discoveries, although Billy himself tries not to notice these similarities. Together they begin the descent in the aqua lift to the Tally Observatory, Laptley wants to introduce the young Donalds to his team. Once in the observatory, in the dark corridor of travelers, one after another they grab something unknown. It turns out to be mutated worms, intending to strangle uninvited guests in their arms. However, once they say something nice, they will immediately let you go. It seems that Laptley does not think to save his nephews, so Billy has to first free himself, and then save his brother. When the danger is left behind, Laptley presents the guys his krill team, which outrages the brothers, given that they survived. They have no choice but to continue on their way down. At the bottom is already visible laboratory, whose blocks were damaged by geysers. Further descent also becomes impossible, since the hot springs damaged the cable, so the trio put on diving suits and continue swimming already. Luminous plankton Laptley shows travelers the way.
Finally, divers safely reach the modest home of Laptley – a separate economic unit, where the caretaker spent four and a half years. Learning the truth about the cousin is a disappointment for the boys: they stole a submarine and spent a lot of time to get here and all for nothing. They intend to come back, but the problem arises – a giant monster intends to dine with them. In a hurry, adventurers float back to the skywalk. But they don’t get up, the glass cracks under the attacks of geysers and a monster, and water begins to pour in, and the laboratory finally collapses. Willy wants to scare away the monster with the help of a searchlight, but suddenly Laptley in the beam of light recognizes his favorite Mitsi. He asks the guys not to torment her with light, Billy hesitates for a while, but still decides to sing a song to the monster. He really turns out to be Mitsy from the Laptley team, which due to hydrothermal springs has grown to incredible sizes. Both of them manage to convince Willy to lower the spotlight, and Mitsy returns them to the surface.
Laptley is really going to become a scientist, for whom the guys took him first, he and Mitsy are leaving in an unknown direction. At this time, Zigzag has already returned from his adventures, Billy suggests returning home, putting the blame for the submarine on Dilly.
