Scrooge McDuck Wikia

Bogford McDivot is an article by Simone Cavazzuti, centered around an interview with John Lustig, which features mention of Scrooge McDuck, Flintheart Glomgold, Bogey McDivot, Quagmire McDuck, Jake McDuck, Quagmire's Wife, Elizabeth McDuck, Margaret McDuck, Mr McDivot, Flintheart Glomgold's father, a second cousin of his and Mulligan Pettifog.


Although an out-of-universe article about the writing of Family of Fore, rather than a narrative of its own, Bogford McDivot saw Cavazzuti and Lustig not only discuss the sources of inspiration for the story, but also brainstorm new information about where Bogey McDivot fell in the Duck Family Tree.

Lustig, who confessed to not having given the matter much thought while writing the story, flirted with the notion of Bogey being Jake McDuck's illegitimate son before landing on the notion that Quagmire McDuck had married and had two daughters, Elizabeth and Margaret; the former married a certain Mr McDivot (becoming Bogey McDivot's mother) whilst the latter married a Glomgold. Lustig added that the Glomgold in question was probably a second cousin of Flintheart's father, to explain that Glomgold had never heard of him.

Although this would not make Scrooge and Bogey blood relations, Lustig also mused that Scrooge and Glomgold's great resemblance suggested they might also be related in a more direct fashion, although somewhat distantly.

Cavazzuti and Lustig also agreed on the idea that "Bogey" was short for "Bogford" in Bogey mcDivot's name.
