        After that discussion I don't know whether we're talking about
the same character.  As far as I know (he's not exactly my favorite;
Feathry alone is enough funny), Fethry's nephew has yellow feathers (as
a real duckling) and wears a hood (as Fethry's, but without the
pom-pom).  The description by Dwight is pretty close, but unlike Jacob's
previous mesage (not quoted), I have never seen Biquinho in that kind of
adventure story - at least not in B-coded stories.  And the earliest
Biquinho stories are from early 80's (1982, I think) when Brazilian
publishers launched a contest to elect his best coloring.
