* AccidentallyAccurate: Whether Rosa meant it or not, we can't be certain, but his depiction of the Whiskervilles dashing harmlessly across quicksand in their panic in "The Last of Clan McDuck" is scientifically accurate, as quicksand is a non-Newtonian fluid, meaning that one can run across it without sinking into it.

It was some of Don Rosa's readers who reacted to ''King of the Klondike'' and wondered if he was trying to add underlying superhero abilities to Scrooge, because of the popularity of superhero comics at the time, which was never Don Rosa's intention, and he was mostly amused by the misunderstanding.

Egmont editor Byron Erickson persuaded Rosa for example to drop [[ProlongedPrologue the seven-page prologue]] of [[InfoDump dense family history]] (the story should be centered on Scrooge) and to completely rewrite chapters 3 and 8 (the first drafts were rather lame).
