Misc. Trivia About Donald Duck and Others from the Comics Pt2

-Scrooge’s business empire is so vast, he himself is not aware of it all

-There are several reasons as to why Scrooge hates spending money, one being his brain literally cannot make the connection between spending and pleasure, since he considers his money friends and mementos. Who would sell their friends and be happy afterwards? (I.N.D.U.C.K.S Story code: D 99317)

-In relation to the point above, Scrooge feels guilty about spending his money, which contributes even more to him being the world’s biggest tightwad

-Scrooge will sometimes make a show of letting in his grand-nephews on his ‘plans’, and keeping Donald in the dark, just to mess with him 

-Contrary to popular belief amongst Duckburg residents, Scrooge does occasionally help the poor. He does it anonymously. He has an image to keep, after all

-Fethry and Donald at one point worked together for Scrooge, and were so used to being fired and re-hired they barely batted an eye anymore

-Fethry completely believes in wishing upon stars. He has a special one that - when actually visible in the sky - grants his wishes (which are simple and endearing) and is so powerful it rivals Gladstone’s fortune

-Fethry enjoys participating in activities everyone knows are a rip-off, like having his palm read and trying to understand the meaning of tea leaves. It’s unsure if he knows these things aren’t real, but he seems to just find them fun

-Donald, unsurprisingly, has a strong paternal instinct, and will freak out over seeing a child in danger

-Daisy loves trying out new hobbies and changing things up all the time

-According to one story by Don Rosa, Donald is partially responsible for the existence of Gyro’s best friend, Little Helper

-Gyro, unsurprisingly, began inventing things since he was in diapers

-Gladstone, when not being petty or resentful (he is rarely those things to begin with) is very generous

I am posting 2x today because its a great day, and I went for a run.  While I was out for my run, my favorite tree was blooming (and my allergies were crazy) and so I wanted to look up the Spanish word for common flowers.  Have a great day :) :) I hope your allergies haven’t been as bad as mine have been these past couple days.

Also yes - occasionally I don’t post about medicine because you need to stop and smell las rosas even when you are fully charging ahead at studying for the MCAT ;)
