Scrooge's Spiritual Father...

On this day...

One hundred and seven years ago, the father of Uncle Scrooge was born.

Carl Barks, arguably the greatest Disney comic book artist was born in Oregon and would go on to fill my life with cherished adventures around the world with the famed fowl tightwad until the day I saw "Raiders of the Lost Ark".

He brought a sense and wonder to Donald Duck Comics expanding Walt's world by adding Scrooge and other citizens of Duckburg. Someday, I'll have to go into a discussion of the difference between the Disney comic world and the Disney animation short world, but that is a discussion for another day.
