While on holiday in sunny Spain to attend a flamenco festival, Miss Mallard, the world-famous ducktective, and her nephew Willard Widgeon of the Swiss police, become involved with intrigue. A painting by Miss Mallard's great friend, El Ducko, Spain's wealthiest artist and guardian of poor and needy ducks, is stolen. Miss Mallard goes undercover as a flamenco dancer to "quack" the case, which she connects to a terrorist's plot by a notorious gang called the Scorpions.
