Oliver Twist is a stage play.
Presumably adapted from Charles Dickens, an Oliver Twist play was put on at Huey, Dewey and Louie Duck's school at some point, and Dewey played the title part, earning what Louie Duck would later call "rave reviews". Dewey repeated a line from the play ("Please, sir, may I have some……") to Mallard Hitchcock in 2017 to get Hitchcock to hire him for the Screaming Duck part in his feature film The Revenge of the Screaming Duck.
Behind the scenesEdit
It is, of course, a nod to Charles Dickens's Oliver Twist, simplified stage adaptations of which are an ever-popular choice for school plays. The line Dewey fails to entirely recall is Oliver's famous "Please, sir, may I have some more?" plea to Mr Bumbles, from the beginning of the story.
Interestingly, Dickens's novel was also loosely used as the basis for the Disney animated film Oliver and Company.
