Tallin De Saddle is an anthropomorphic dog.
Snarlin Grando was a highly successful actor in westerns of the the early 1960's. He got his start in the acting business after a director witnessed De Saddle's riding ability in a peculiar incident involving a camel. In 1961, Huey, Dewey and Louie heard of this and tried to replicate the circumstances of this event to try and make their uncle Donald as famous as De Saddle.
Behind the scenesEdit
Snarlin Grando was only ever seen in the 1961 story Sitting High. He is, of course, a parody of famous actor John Wayne, whom Carl Barks also caricatured as Longhorn Tallgrass, although the characters as such are separate.
