No need to be sorry. I haven't seen it either, but I feel that I will 
agree with everyone else that Van Horn shouldn't have been the one doing 
this. He is the king of slapstick comics and this seems to be more like a 
normal adventure tale.

That sounds like the previously discussed "This is Your Life, Donald 
Duck" to me. Although I don't remember seeing any Grandpa, Donald spent 
his childhood years on Grandma's farm in that story.

And thanks for all the French names. Pity I didn't have them a week ago. 
Now you'll have to wait for them to show up in the Names list.

I've also got some comments on the database, but I'll gather some more 
ammunition before I dump them onto you. I'd just like to take the 
opportunity to THANK you for all the marvellous work you have put into 
this project!
