You're welcome, but I honestly can't take credit for bringing back the
Scamp characters -- I was asked to do so by ECN.

And in case anybody is interested: we won't be using any element
originated in the "Lady and the Tramp II" movie. I'm going to stick with
the first movie, the comic books and the newspaper strip.

The story was *very* cute, yeah, but it was necessary for the purposes
of that particular story. Don't worry: future Scamp stories will be less

I too thought Daniel Perez did a good job. And yes, to me the "real"
Danish weekly is still the one from the early 1970s, when we had Ducks,
Mice, Scamp, Madam Mim, the Wolves, Little Hiawatha, Chip 'n' Dale,
Br'er Rabbit, the Aristocats etc. Great stuff!

And thanks for the positive words, both of you.
