Gyro Gearloose

A brilliant, if somewhat absent-minded, inventor.

He was created by Carl Barks and debuted in WDC 140.


[By Jonathan Markoff:]

Gyro's grandfather Ratchet Gearloose first appeared in The Fantastic River Race by Carl Barks. Gyro's father Fulton Gearloose appeared in Life of Scrooge part 10 by Don Rosa. In Gold Key and Whitman comics of the 1960s and 1970s, Gyro had a nephew named Newton.

Little Helper

He (it?) appeared for the first time in The Cat Box by Barks.

In the DuckTales episode The Money Vanishes he appears, with the name Li'l Bulb, but in the comics he is Helper or Little Helper.
