The Cornelius Coot statue in Toontown Fair (one of the 
lands in Magic Kingdom (one of the theme parks at Walt 
Disney World in Florida)) is one of my favoite things in 
Walt Disney World.  It's unexpected to find something
taken directly from the comic books (instead of a movie)
and yet, there it is!  It really the only reason to go to
Toontown Fair (unless you have small children).

And I'm pretty sure it is labeled Cornelius Coot. Of 
course, the sign by the statue talks of him as the founder
of Toontown Fair (instead of the founder of Duckberg),
but that's a reasonable adjustment to the setting...
