Flintheart Junior is an American badger.
Upon seeing him through the Little Helper's camera, Scrooge McDuck was so startled by it, that he thought that he was Flintheart Glomgold. The Little Helper stunned the badger with the flashlight in order to get to money from the Money Bin which had fallen into the hill.
Scrooge would eventually name the badger, "Flintheart Junior", and the two seemed to enjoy each other's company for a brief time while Scrooge waited for his money to be restored.
Behind the ScenesEdit
The American Badger is generally a solitary animal, who is notorious for searching for prey in the prairie regions, making the analogy to Flintheart Glomgold a jab.
