Scrooge McDuck Wikia

Forbidden Fruit is a comic strip written by Homer Brightman and drawn by Al Taliaferro; it features Donald Duck and Bolivar.


Donald Duck thinks up a stratagem to get apples from a tree that Bolivar is guarding rather ferociously. As usual where Donald's schemes are concerned, things do not go as planned.
