* Why has Donald always endured in popularity while other classic Disney characters tend to wax and wane? First of all, he has plenty of human faults - a rotten temper, kinda lazy, being a bit of a [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold jerk (albeit with a good heart)]], and very outgoing and friendly once he stopped speaking {{Angrish}}. He's also been the one character that kept reinventing himself with the times. [[TheSeventies Disco dancing duck?]] Yup. [[TheEighties Showing up with a video camera and an Aloha shirt a decade later?]] He's game. Two decades and change later, and [[Franchise/KingdomHearts he's still reinventing himself]].

* There are heavy implications that Donald's post-World War II personality change (becoming more short-tempered and prone to violence) are symptoms of his having PTSD as a result of his service in the Pacific Front in the Disney {{Wartime Cartoon}}s. In a pre-war comic, Donald tries to catch a thief stealing his food with a camera trap, and it turned out to be himself sleepwalking. When the same thing happened years later after the war, his nephews tried to wake him from sleepwalking with a firecracker prank. Donald promptly has a flashback to his duty in the Pacific Front, freaks out at the "Japanese-laid minefield and ambush", and throws some things at his nephews (Which in his rather frantic state he perceives to be grenades that he's flinging at Japanese soldiers).

* What's going to happen with all of Scrooge's money and businesses around the world after he passes away? Apparently it all goes to Huey, Dewey and Louie as they are smart and sensible enough to take care of it, but assuming they're in their teens, or at most, are young adults when the time comes, it can't turn out a very healthy life for the three having such massive wealth and responsibilities on their backs the rest of their lives.

*** According to Don Rosa's unofficial timeline, Scrooge died in 1967, at the age of 100. If that makes Scrooge fans upset, it might help to consider that Don Rosa's earlier stories showed Scrooge's ancestors, as well as his father, living content on as ghosts, meaning Scrooge would likely do so as well.
