Scrooge McDuck Wikia

Burning Hearts (Brændende kærlighed in the original Dutch version) is a comic story written and drawn by Marco Rota. It features Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, and, in their debuts, Valiant Rudofino (and his fictional alter-ego, Sheik Hassan Ben Beat), Harry, Joe, and Girlie.


After Donald sees Daisy entering a limousine with who appears to be a rich sheikh, he follows them to the swanky Hotel Van Snobbe, where he spends the day attempting to ruin what appears to be a date between the two. But things are not quite as they seem...


  • The Hotel Van Snobbe is a fancy and expensive hotel located in downtown Duckburg.
  • Actor Valiant Rudofino portrays Sheik Hassan Ben Beat in the Burning Sands film trilogy.
  • Publicity agents Harry, Joe, and Girlie work for an unknown film studio in Duckburg, presumably the same studio which produces the Burning Sands film trilogy.
