Fridge: Donald Duck
- Why exactly does Donald stay with Daisy? She leaves Donald for Gladstone whenever she damn well feels like it, and it's not like Donald doesn't have better options. (Those "better options" including Xadhoom and Kay K. The former of whom he's flirted far more with than Daisy....)
- It's a fool that looks for logic in the chambers of a duck's heart.
- Two very good reasons. The first is actually shown in the strip it introduced Daisy by making clear that, in-universe, Daisy is just that beautiful (Donald was furious at the new neighbour accidentally graze his prized rose hedge with the moving truck. Then saw Daisy driving it and spontaneously cut down the whole hedge). The second, given you bring in the Italian stories featuring or implying Paperinik New Adventures, is Hidden Depths: Daisy has her own superhero alter ego, Paperinika, with whom Paperinik has a relationship of obvious rivalry and loathe and barely disguised attraction and admiration, and Donald may be unconsciously after this side of hers.
- If you think too much about Don Rosa's Arc Welding work, you have to conclude that everyone's parents are dead.
- Not much fridge: The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck showed Scrooge's father's corpse... On the other hand, Matilda McDuck is still alive and well, so Hortense and Della could still be around.
- Furthermore, Don Rosa usually implies that his "Present Day" stories are actually set during the heydays of Carl Barks' classic stories (thus mostly during The Fifties), which means that as of right now, most characters should be either really old (e.g. Donald and even HD&L) or most probably already dead (e.g. Grandma Duck and Scrooge himself)!
- According to Don Rosa's unofficial timeline, Scrooge died in 1967, at the age of 100. If that should make 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.
