Scrooge McDuck Wikia

The Spirit of Innocence, better-known as “Spit”, is a male spirit whose physical form resembles a gnome.


The Spirit of Innocence, who often takes the physical appearance of a small gnome with orange hair, smoking a pipe and wielding a Magic Wand, is the magical incarnation of childhood innocence. Good friends with Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, Cupid, and Leprechauns as a whole (as he is a protector of humans' belief in them), he has the ability to bestow magical punishment on adults who deliberately and pettily shatter children's sense of wonder. Hence, on the day that Donald Duck, out of little else than spite, tried to get Huey, Dewey and Louie Duck to abandon their belief in pots of gold at the end of rainbows, Spit cursed him to become a Tooth Fairy for penance.
