Captain Gusbert Walton was an anthropomorphic gander.


Gusbert Walton was a simple-minded man with a penchant for invention and discovery, who, in the beginning of the 19th century, helmed a naval expedition to the North Pole. While on this journey, he also claimed to be the first man to discover that licking ice got one's tongue stuck to it. Throughout the expedition, Walton wrote about his progresses to his beloved grandmother back home.

Some way into the journey, Walton's boat's advance was halted by heavy fogs. This was when Walton's crew first spotted Growl, as a monstrous figure speeding a sleigh through the snow, unhindered by the cold. Soon after, Gusbert rescued the being's half-dead creator, the artist-scientist Victor von Duckenstein, with whom he went on to become friends. Duckenstein told Gusbert his story, and Gusbert, in turn, relayed it to his grandmother in writing. After Growl boarded the boat as well and patched things up with Victor, the two left on their sleigh, headed for Calisota, saying goodbye to Captain Walton.

Behind the scenesEdit

Gusbert Walton serves as the narrator of the 2016 story Duckenstein.

As the story is one of the Grandi Parodie, he is a historical counterpart to a present-day regular, namely, Gus Goose — much as his grandmother resembles Grandma Duck. As to the "Frankenstein parody" aspect of things, he is the Disney equivalent of the much more intelligent but otherwise similar Captain Robert Walton of the original.
