Donald Duck and his equally-cantankerous neighbor Judhead Jones attempt to make amends for their senseless feud and become friends. Be it random happenstance, Donald's bad luck, or the two neighbors' clashing personalities, this doesn't last long and the battle soon starts again, fiercer than ever — with Donald's nephews dragged in.
Behind the scenes
This story was first published in 1943 in Walt Disney's Comics and Stories #38. It was reprinted in Donald Duck #326, Gladstone Comic Album #27 and Walt Disney's Comics in Color #2, and, of course, in the various versions of the Carl Barks Library.
The story is the first appearance of Jones in his modern design, following his rather different debut in Good Deeds. Though some don't believe it is the same Jones, Good Neighbors opens with the Donad/Jones fight already in progress, and combined with the shared structure of the titles, it is clear that Neighbors is intended as a follow-up to Deeds.
The 2001 story Friendly Feuders serves as a sequel to this story.
