According to Don Rosa Donald and Della Duck are borned on 1920.Donald has
already met Mickey Mouse by 1931(More HooZoo).Donald's life starts being
recorded on 1934(Wise Little Hen).Are any of his cartoon and comic strips
adventures considered as cannon?On 1934 he already lives alone and knows how
to play music,in 1935 he confirms his ability and a preference to flutes.
On 1937 he first meets his nephews in a comic strip.His seventeen-year-old
sister already had children.But Don claims his nephews weren't borned until
1940.Are Donald's appearances with his nephews both in cartoon and
comicbooks released between 1937 and 1947(Christmas on Bear Mountain)
actualy taking place between 1940 and 1947?
When Does he meet his nephews?Della is not mentioned after 1944,probably
deceased.So some time between 1940 and 1944?
What about Donald's women?He is with Donna Duck on 1937 and Daisy Duck on
1940.They can't be the same person since they meet each other in a comic
strip of the time.
Donald is supposed to be serving in the U.S.A army during the World War
II.Is this considered as an actual reference to his life?
What about Carl Bark stories between 1942 and 1947?Don considered Scrooge
retired during those years to explain why wasn't he appearing in those
stories.But when did this stories happen?The kids in the Pirate Gold of 1942
do not act as two years old.And when do this latest Barks'stories happen.In
"A little Something SpeciaL" by Don Rosa Scrooge meets Flintheart
Glomgold(1956) and Magica De Spell(1962) on 1952.Have all the Barks stories
and the previous Don's already occured till 1952?
Any explanation for the 1920-1967 continiuty of the Ducks?
I liked Don's painting of Scrooge's grave.According to Don the 19th
centurie Ducks followed each other to the grave between the 1960's and the
1970's.So among the additions to the McDucks' cemeterie during the period
1)Elvira Coot.Her farm must pass to whoever of her descedants is now the
head of the family.
2)Scrooge McDuch.He must have chosen a single heir because in "The Sands of
Time" he doesn't want his money to be divided.
3)Flintheard Glomgold.If he didn't want his fortune to be inherited by the
Southafrican govermwent he probably left it to the still living Scrooge or
4)John D.Rockerduck.The third richest Duck in the world(he actualuy claims
to be second) has nephews to take over his business.
5)Glittering Goldie O'Gilt.What ever business she had in the North probably
were inherited bu her granddaughter Dickie Duck.
6)Brigitta McBridge.Scrooge's second love probably left whatever fortune she
had to her friends Daisy or Dickie Duck.
7)Molly McGold.The richest businesswoman in Gooseburg probably left her
fortune to Scrooge's heir.So Scrooge idea of how could their fortunes be
joined can be fullfiled.
8)Ludwig Von Drake.The lonely Austrian probably died.Whatever money he had
probably went to the Duck who idolised him:Fethry Duck.
