The “Thinking Wolf” is a non-anthropomorphic wolf who was temporarily granted sentience by the Think Boxes in 1952.
The Thinking Wolf was an ordinary red wolf inhabiting the outskirts of the Black Forest near Duckburg until, one night in June of 1952, Gyro Gearloose put his Think Boxes to the test by leaving them on either side of a forest path for a night. While on its way to purloin some chickens from a coop, the Wolf passed between the ray and was granted sapience. This did nothing to change his outlook on the morality of predation, but made him want cooked food — and gave him enough intelligence to efficiently start hunting people, as Donald Duck soon discovered. In the end, Gyro and Huey, Dewey and Louie cancelled the Wolf's intelligence by reversing the polarity of the Boxes, returning his mental processes to those of a normal wolf and making him abandon the captive Donald and the bonfire he'd been building.
Behind the scenesEdit
