Oh, my loved comics! Since I have move for another home, my DCs are
closed in boxes hard to find a special number. But, if as far as I can
remember, Amadeo is a crown who appeared on stories with Michey and
Goofy (and he was not a school boy as is sugested in this scan). Later
he appeared with Joe Carioca, for a short period of time. I don't know
his English name, but I don't think he is a brazilian character. I will
try to find some Ze Carioca's comics in the boxes this weekend.
