And when Neighbor Jones tries to ruin the party, it's up to the crowd to save the party.
Behind the scenesEdit
This story was first published on October 23rd, 1992, in the Dutch Donald Duck #1992X43. It was printed in English in Walt Disney's Comics and Stories #715, where, to avoid confusing readers not familiar with the plot device of Donald's story being recounted in comic books in-universe, the Donald Duck book was replaced with a "homebrew community paper" created by Humperdink Duck, called the Webfoot Waddle, meant to celebrate its 70th birthday in that story. While the story avoided mentioning it, the date of a 70th anniversary was, of course, an allusion to the anniversary of Walt Disney's Comics and Stories.
