Description[edit | edit source]
Created with the frame device that Daisy Duck has created an outdoors, literal Duck Family Tree by hanging various portraits of Duck family members on a large tree, the tree does not offer much in the way of outright genealogy, simply ordering the characters in loose generational orders and giving hints as to how they might fit together, inasmuch as the McDucks are all on one side and the American families on the right. Notably, despite the tree's Italian origin, Elvira Duck is on the Duck side, far away from Scrooge McDuck, rather than depicted as his sister.
The tree also famously includes the Grandpa Duck from No Hunting and Grandpa Duck from The Good Old Daze as separate characters, the No Hunting character being accounted for as Donald's great-grandfather (Bluffer Duck does not appear in the tree).
The following characters appear on the tree:
- Titus McDuck (depicted as in The Search for Cyril)
- Grandpa Duck (from No Hunting; as “Donald's great-grandfather”)
- Jake McDuck
- Elvira Duck (as “Grandma Duck”)
- Humperdink Duck (as “Donald's grandfather”; depicted as in [[[The Good Old Daze]])
- Drusilla Duck
- Gideon McDuck
- Cyril McDuck
- Scrooge McDuck
- Ludwig von Drake
- Gladstone Gander
- Kildare Coot
- Fethry Duck
- Donald Duck
- Gus Goose
- April, May and June
- Huey, Dewey and Louie Duck
Additionally, Daisy Duck is still holding an additional picture frame (the canvas turned away from the reader), and appears unsure where to put it.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
This version of the Duck Family Tree was created as part of the chapter “Una famiglia numerosa” of the 1994 Italian book Walt Disney Presenta Paperina e le altre. It has never been printed in English.
