Scrooge McDuck Wikia

For Whom The Bull Toils! is a comic story scripted and penciled by John Blair Moore, and inked by Gary Martin, adapting the second quarter of Darkly Dawns The Duck (cartoon), whose script was by Tad Stones, Jan Strnad and Jymn Magon. The second chapter of Brawl in the Family, it features Darkwing Duck, Taurus BulbaTantalus, Launchpad McQuack, Gosalyn Mallard, Mrs Cavanaugh, Hammerhead Hannigan, Hoof and Mouth, Warden Waddlesworth and Clovis, and a picture of Professor Waddlemeyer. Davey Jones is mentioned by a caption-box.


Crime boss Taurus Bulba's henchmen Hammerhead Hannigan, Hoof and Mouth succeed in abducting Gosalyn Waddlemeyer, last living descendant of Ram Rod inventor Professor Waddlemeyer, from the St. Canard Orphanage — but Darkwing Duck gets involved, and discovers (not without fondness) that the kid herself is more of a handful than the villains expected.


  • Gosalyn explains to Hannigan that “after Mom and Dad died, Granpa was the only family [she] had in the world”.


Behind the scenes

For Whom The Bull Toils was printed in 1991 in the second issue of a Darkwing Duck limited comic series devoted solely to the publication of Brawl in the Family’s four chapters.

The story was later reprinted in the U.S. Disney's Colossal Comics Collection #4 and in Darkwing Duck Classics #1.
