Mrs Van Astorbilt is a female dognose.

Description Edit

Gentle, portly Mrs Van Astorbilt and her husband are extremely rich Duckburgers of refined tastes. As a result, when trying to climb up the social ladder in 1948, Donald Duck invited them both to his garden party, unaware that his girlfriend and nephews (believing themselves to be be monkeys because of Hypnotic Spectacles) would crash the party. After a bowl of chocolate cream was thrown at Mrs Van Astorbilt's face, the two fled. Eleven years later, Scrooge McDuck invited her (although, it seems, not her husband) to a similar picnic-for-the-elite, which was again ruined by wacky circumstances, in this case by the unexpected arrival of Doctor Thinknoble's Titanic Ants, from whom Mrs Van Astorbilt fled up a tree.

Behind the scenes Edit

A rich family known as the "Astorbilts" are mentioned in Don Rosa's Fit to be Pied, however, it is unknown if this is the same family.
