  • Could i become an admin? also what is your oppinion on Thomas and Friends?

    • Hold your horses! You only joined this Wiki something like two months ago, and have only 63 edits to your name. Someday there's no reason you couldn't become an administrator, but this is way too early to even think about it. Prove yourself first.

      As for Thomas & Friends, never watched it, so no opinion at all there. Seems friendly enough, I suppose.

    • Alright, thanks for replying. A thing of note the Thomas and Friends franchise was first published in 1945.

  • Hi, I'm an admin on Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated Wiki. I'm wondering if this wiki would like to have an affiliation with mine?

  • Did you know that then Walt Disney loved Italy, and therefore is the trusted foreign state of the homonymous production company? In fact, Walt Disney Company Italy is  the first foreign branch in the world, with the best dubbing in the world for film and distribution, not to mention the longest comic strip in the world, then, isn't it?

  • Hey Scrooge MacDuck,

    I saw your summary on your edit of Biography of Donald Duck and was wondering if by "Three Caballeros" you meant The Legend of the Three Caballeros or the original The Three Caballeros film? Stopping around there is alright by me, but I did kind of think we would mention Christmas on Bear Mountain and maybe even Fethry's return into Donald's life with that Strobl story where Fethry visits Donald for the first time in years the name of which I cannot remember but I think was published shortly after The Health Nut. I know that including every detail of Donald's life past about 1945 would probably be ridiculous and make the biography much to big, but I had thought we could at least include mentions of important factoids like his reunion with Scrooge or his reunion with Fethry. What do you think, and which Three Caballeros were you referring to?

      Seems pretty solid, though I think it's worth noting Donald and Mickey were frequent co-stars in cartoons up through 1942, so while he may have temporarily lived in Duckburg and New Quackmore in 1936 (as per The Legend of the Three Caballeros), I think he also had a home somewhere near Mickey around this time. 

      Well, remember that despite Gottfredson-purists' speculation otherwise on the Feathery Society lately, Mouseton and Duckburg are firmly established to be neighboring, nigh-twin cities in Italian comics. It's about as easy for Donald to go from Duckburg to Mouseton as to go from one neighborhood of Duckburg to the other; indeed, perhaps New Quackmore is located between Duckburg city centre and Mouseton, putting Donald's Legends-era home even closer to Mickey's.

      Also, your idea about Donald crashing at Mickey's place seems to be contradicted by this 1935 strip which clearly shows Donald living separately from Mickey and living in Hometown.

      Oh, okay. Too bad. It was just a random thoughtt.

      TheMidgetMoose wrote: He also lived in Hollywood in HDL's debut strip.

      Tut-tut. Della addressed the letter to Hollywood, but it could be that this was because it was the only address of her brother's that she knew, and the letter was forwarded from his place in Hollywood to his current home (whether in Mouseton/Hometown, Duckburg or elsewhere).

      TheMidgetMoose wrote: He may not have even permanently moved to Duckburg until after World War II.

      I'm not sure I entirely follow your line of argument. Yes, despite From Egg To Duck’s attempted retcon, we do hold that Donald served in World War II — in general, when a cartoon is later retconned to have only been an in-universe film in which the character acted, we hold that both are true: the story broadly happened, and then a semi-biographical movie got made out of it, similar to how The Man Who Drew Ducks holds that the in-universe Carl Barks's comics are fairly accurate renditions of real events, allowing Back to the Klondike and such to exist within a world where it actually happened.

      …but what the heck does that have to do with when Donald moved to Duckburg?

      Like Moose said, we don't start inventing alternate continuities unless there's really no other way and/or the creators explicitly call it a reboot. In Legend’s case, until I see hard evidence otherwise, it seems to me like they're more or less telling new stories about the classic characters, not attempting to craft a whole new universe; note for instance Scrooge in the finale, who's just there without needing any introduction. They simply went with the "sliding timeline" way of writing; yes, there are cellphones, but it's the same problem as the occasional comic story where Scrooge refers to "fifty years ago in the Klondike" while HDL are using cellphones. What we do is we just ignore the cellphones/assume it's Gyro Gearloose technology/something-or-other.

    • My point regarding the war stuff is that he seems to have lived in Hollywood around this time (as per From Egg to Duck and The New Spirit) and undoubtedly spent some time overseas (as per Commando Duck). I guess I'm just saying that it's hard to imagine he also lived in Duckburg this era. It's possible, but it all feels complicated. Of course, it just occurred to me that the first story to mention Duckburg was released in 1944, right? That would contradict my hypothesis that he didn't move to Duckburg until post-World War II.

  • I'm hoping to get to creating some pages on songs that already have redlinks soon, and I was wondering if it is allowed to have the full song in the infobox. I don't want to make the same mistake I did with the shorts. If the song is not allowed, what should be the image in the infobox? It's just hard to think of a good picture that fits with every shot. Maybe a still from the scene in which it appears would work, but I don't know for sure.

    • The song's allowed; it is at the end of the day just a clip from the movie or audio story in which it originates, and besides, unlike full films (where Disney makes at least a token effort to keep them off the free web), it is overwhelmingly clear that they knowingly tolerate the various illegal uploads of Poor Unfortunate Souls or whatever. 

      Note that some of the more notorious Disney songs have in fact been uploaded by some of the official Disney YouTube channels; obviously, when that's the case, go with that rather than a bootleg unless there's a very good reason otherwise. 

      Thanks for asking, at any rate!

  • So...how do you think we should tackle the MASSIVE cast of characters who appear in the episode? I mean, there are thirty-one actors listed as part of the cast, several of them with multiple roles, and that doesn't even cover the number of characters who made silent cameos.

      Loading editor
    • We've dealt with giant-cast stories before; consider 70th Heaven. In short, all non-main characters are relegated to a specific paragraph in the lead in smaller font. The infobox/cast poses no problem, as there is no pressure for the entire voice cast to be in the Infobox; the field is called "Main cast", so that would basically mean the Ducks, Lunaris, Glomgold, and at a stretch Penumbra and Darkwing.

    • All right then. The idea of a leading paragraph with all those characters just seemed a bit crazy, but if that’s how we do it that’s how we do it.

  • Hey Scrooge MacDuck,

    It doesn't matter a whole lot to me either way, but I'm curious as to why you replaced Bleachjt's picture for Phooey Duck (2017 Continuum). Both images are nearly the same. The only major difference is coloring and the fact that your image is wider. I mean no offense to you personally at all by this, but I actually thought the coloring in Bleachjt's looked better, as the inside of the beak including the tongue is actually visible and not just black and he has more of a natural, off-white look to him.

    Like I said, I don't care too much either way, I'm just curious. I also mean no offense to you personally regarding my personal perference of Bleachjt's picture. I'm just curious as to why you prefer the picture you uploaded.

    Thanks in advance!

    P.S. There's also some stuff going on in the Discuss area you might want to look at. Nothing super major, just someone mad/heartbroken about having their posts locked. I guess either you or Drleevezan probably need to address it.

    • Thank you for telling me, regarding Discuss. 

      Concerning Phooey, wider aspect ratios are to be preferred forcharacter images, which was the main impetus behind my editing the image. While I was at it I also boosted the contrast to try and get rid of the "screenshot effect" that made the original slightly blurry, his white feathers more beige, and the lines that should be black greenish. I hadn't noticed the problem with the tongue, though. I'll see what I can do. 

      As for "Plot" vs. "Description", no, there's no particular rule over which one to use for unofficial works. Best go with "plot".
