Dog Park Ducks

Huey, Dewey and Louie take on Uncle Scrooge in “Wag the Dog,” one of four new stories in Walt Disney’s Uncle Scrooge 377. Writer Geoffrey Blum is well known for his expertise on the characters and their original creator, Carl Barks. Blum is also a regular at a Richmond, Calif., off-leash dog park, which gave him the story idea. “My dog J.J. and I are daily visitors at Point Isabel,” says Blum. “I spun the story around long-term squabbles between the dog people, prospective developers and preservationists, who wanted to kick out both and turn the shoreline into a bird preserve. I had no overt political agenda, just a strong emotional investment. I sketched maps and diagrams of Point Isabel, and the artist incorporated them into his drawings.” In this story, the Duckburg brothers fight to save Point Pintail from being turned into one of Uncle Scrooge’s savings-and-loan malls. With friends like Mother Marshbird, Spike Badmore, Tina Gabhard and hapless “Unca Donald,” the brothers don’t need enemies!
