Well, it was in the early years (1952), so it's possible. And after all, he
was created
after Ebenezer Scrooge, who chose the wrong path in his youth and preferred
to the love of  a young girl. And he doesn't exactly kick him out.
And one year later, in Jan '53 (WDC&S 148, "Turkey with all the Schemings",
album 22),
he doesn't see through Donald's much thinner disguise.
I guess there are two ways to read it.
