    Like This Thread!
    Hi everybody!

    According to Don Rosa is Scrooge McDuck dead today! Don Rosa mean that Scrooge died in 1967. Do you agree? Do you mean and think Scrooge McDuck is dead?
    With kindly greetings from Norway!
    Sincere,
    Cartoon Freak, 14

    Uh, could you rephrase that into a coherent sentence, please? That whole post went totally over my head, sorry.

    The version of Uncle Scrooge from the Disney comics (not the DuckTales series) created by Carl Barks and continued by Keno Don Rosa was a layered continuity in which Scrooge was a sourdough in the Yukon near the turn of the century and amassed his fortune early on in the twentieth. The comic stories were set in the 1950s (Barks set them there because it was current and Rosa set it there for consistancy) and Bark's heir apparrant has said that Scrooge died in 1967-the year Barks' last Scrooge story appeared. In Rosa's version Scrooge has indeed passed on (few Disney character are "dead") although there are MANY comic book writers who have Scrooge alive in the present day be they talented (William Van Horn) or not (Geoffrey Blum.)

    So yes, Barks and Rosa's version is dead. But really, if you think about it so are Ariel, Aladdin, Belle, The Beast, The Gummi Bears, Baloo, Pochahontas, Quasimodo, Hercules, Mulan, Tarzan, Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Bambi, Dumbo, Pinochio, Lady, Tramp, all 101 Dalmations and a ton of other characters that existed in the past.

    Comic Scrooge, RIP

    Animated Scrooge (Ducktales, House of Mouse, etc), still living the high life and pinching pennies wherever he can.

    Are you sure about this? I've always thought that the unsaid reason why Launchpad and Gizmoduck ended up in St. Canard was because the ol' geezer bought it (at the cheapest price possible). It's especially weird to have Launchpad unenployed after he actually learned how to not crash.

    Who did his voice? What's he done on House of Mouse?

    Ducktales was the best of the toon series back then when you also had Rescue Rangers, Talespin, and Darkwing Duck on at the same time.

    Alan Young, who was best known as Wilbur on Mister Ed voiced Scrooge on DuckTales.

    Did anyone else walk into this thread, expecting to read about Alan Young having died, or something? So not nice a trick.
