Recap / Duck Tales S 1 E 54 Maid Of The Myth

Go To

Mrs. Beakley is abducted by Vikings from Norse Mythology and it is up to Scrooge and the others to rescue her.

This episode contains examples of the following tropes:

  • All Part of the Show: Mrs. Beakley was performing when some real Vikings showed up and abducted her. They were gone before anyone realized it wasn't part of the show.
  • Glass-Shattering Sound: Mrs. Beakley uses her opera singing to bring down an avalanche, letting her racing team cross a crevasse.
    Mrs. Beakley: If the sound of a horn can do that, what would a C above high C do?

  • Leitmotif: Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries (with wordless lyrics) is what Mrs. Beakley is singing when the Vikings appear, of course. Its instrumental version is then used for much of the soundtrack of the episode.
  • Lost World: The island where the Vikings live (cut off by ice but heated by volcanoes and hot springs so as to have flora and fauna) is implied to be this, to explain how Vikings could exist in the present day.

How well does it match the trope?
