We all know that Scrooge's character is inspired by Ebenezer Scrooge, whose
role he played in "Mickey Christmas Carol"..
In my genealogical researches, I found several Ebenezer in the family :
first in strobl's "Uncle Donald and His Nephews - Family Fun", from "Dell
Giant" # 38, 1960
we can see a Ebenezer Duck on a family tree...
Then, Asger Pedersen's list mentions an Ebenezer McDuck in Bradbury's "Indian
Takeover" (S 68064 , 1968), who was Scrooge's grandfather, at least in the
danish version of that story :
and eventually, INDUCKS mentions a "Old Ebeneeza McDuck "
in Strobl's "Be it Ever so Humble " (S 67019 , 1967)
Does anybody know if Strobl and Bradbury communicate their works to
eachother, or that Bradbury's knew strobl's 1967 story? Were both ebenezer's intended
to be the same character???
