1Everyone begins seeing double when Magica [=DeSpell=] gets the Beagle Boys to help her steal the Number One Dime, disguising them as the nephews. Can the nephews expose them before the dime is stolen and before Mrs. Beakley loses her mind?!!This episode contains examples of the following tropes:* BalefulPolymorph: ** Big Time Beagle gets transformed into a dragon at one point in the episode. Actually, he didn't mind it -- it made it easier for him to threaten the nephews.** Additionally, Huey is briefly turned into a baby chicken and a pig, Magica is turned into a crow (like her brother), and both Big Time and Baby Face undergo numerous transformations during the climax.* BodySnatcher: Having been to a movie about aliens "quacker-snatching" people beforehand, this is the triplets' first thought as to what's happened to Mrs. Beakley (and, later, Huey) when they return to Scrooge's mansion to find Mrs. Beakley (actually Magica) not acting like herself, at least until they find out what's ''really'' going on.* EatenAlive: Inverted, in that Magica (disguised as Mrs. Beakley) tells the nephews to "Eat your soup while it's still alive!" It's unsure why she served them whatever the creature was.* ElmuhFuddSyndwome: Mrs. Walters, the reporter who is trying to interview Scrooge for the magazine she works for throughout the episode.* {{Fainting}}: Mrs. Beakley's first reaction upon holding who she thinks are Dewey and Louie (actually Baby Face and Big Time Beagle respectively) [[TheMirrorShowsYourTrueSelf in front of a mirror]] is to do this after an OhCrap reaction. She later does so again, this time being forced into said state by Magica.* GlamourFailure: Magica's spell that turns the Beagle Boys into copies of Scrooge's nephews. While they looked like Huey, Dewey, and Louie, their reflections in mirrors revealed their true selves. They also still kept their original voices, which was even pointed out by Scrooge when Magica disguised herself as Mrs. Beakley and he asked her why she now talked with an accent.* GoingForTheBigScoop: Mrs. Walters stows away in a helicopter with Scrooge and the others as they set off to get back the Number One Dime and save Huey and Mrs. Beakley.* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Webra Walters is the standard comedienne's imitation of Creator/BarbaraWalters, as established by Creator/GildaRadner.* TheMirrorShowsYourTrueSelf: The snafu of Magica's spell, as mentioned under GlamourFailure.* ScaledUp: Big Time Beagle temporarily becoming a dragon during the climax of the episode.* ShoutOut: The title is a reference to [[Theatre/ALittleNightMusic "Send in the Clowns"]].* VillainTeamUp: Magica De Spell and the Beagle Boys.* YouAreGrounded: Scrooge grounds the triplets (actually the disguised Beagle Boys) after they cause trouble for Mrs. Beakley and Webby and blow up Scrooge's study searching for the Number One Dime. Needless to say, the ''real'' triplets are confused as to why Unca Scrooge is so mad at them for leaving their room when they return from the movie they went to see earlier.-->'''Nephews:''' [[BewilderingPunishment What did we do?]]\'''Scrooge:''' Go!----
