In Zio Paperone #120 his very name was Tom... And he seems to be Donald's
cousin, indeed... I even know that Fred Milton wished to use Fethry Duck in
the beginning.

Strange. Indeed, I forgot that Gus Goose has a *sister* in a very old,
non-Barks stry. Her name is Greta, Granda goes to visit her in the north
woods (a place not far from Hidden River or from Crearwater's place, I
guess). The story was (very well) drawn by Bill Wright and it shall be
reprinted it in Italy,quite soon.

"WHY?" is the question.
And what about Brigitta McBridge? No  mention of Scarpa at all?
