    Looks like Mickey Mouse slim (aka Mickey Mouse 2013 shorts)
    But at least its not CGI so it will not be unwatchable as Mickey Mouse Clubhouse

    I guess someone forgot they’re not related. 😉 Webby is the granddaughter of the housekeeper, Mrs. Beakley. No relation to Scrooge whatsoever.

    Hi Jano! This is going to be an off-topic message. The reason I am writing here is that what I want to ask you is related to Disqus. So, I have been a Don Rosa fan for a long time, but I’m also a movie fan. I use this account to comment on articles on one specific movie related site. On that site I have had a stalker for about a year who claims that he is a long-time friend of Don Rosa and that Don hates that I use the name “Pertwillaby” as my username. This guy has been harrasing me for months and is telling me to change my username. Do you know anything about this? To me, it seems completely unbelievable that Don would be upset about a random person using the name “Pertwillaby” as a username on a random movie related blog. Anyway, I am writing to ask if you have heard anything about this. Please reply to this message if you have time. Sorry for not revealing my identity, I prefer to stay anonymous thanks to this stalker who claims to be a friend of Don.
