Continuity

Behind the scenes

This entry in the Hey, Daisy, Whatever Happened To Scrooge? series, first published in the German fanzine Der Donaldist - Sonderheft #77, was printed in the United States of America in in Walt Disney Treasures #2 (2008) and in Volume 3 of the Don Rosa Library. It is without a doubt the most famous entry in the series, having served as the opportunity for Don Rosa to present his vision of the epilogue to the “canon” of Carl Barks's stories and his own, with Scrooge dying and the triplets growing up. The date of 1967 was chosen as the year Barks stopped drawing new adventures of Uncle Scrooge in the real world.
