>I would appreciate it very much, if any of you kind Finns out there would 
>be willing to translate the texts.


>1st motif: Donald labels some post packages and says, with a mean 
>expression on his face: Iloinen tervehdys ankkalinnasta!

"Cheerful greeting from Duckburg!"

>2nd motif: Scrooge, swimming in his money bin, says: Aah! Olen jälleen 
>rikas ja onnellinen! Nuorruin vuosikymmeniä!

"Aah! I'm rich and happy again. I grew decades younger!"

>3rd motif: Goofy, addressing the viewer, says: Hei, mä keksin ...

"Hey, I figured it..."

>4th motif: Daisy, hitting Donald with her bag, says: Toden totta!


>5th motif: The Beagle Boys, driving a car and looking very frightened, 
>say: Eijeijei! (Meaning "Oh, oh, oh!" I suppose).

Yes, quite. "Nonono!" to be precise.

>On the back of the package: Pakkaus sisältää viisi Aku Ankka-Aiheista 

"The package contains five Aku Ankka -themed post cards."

>Inside the package: Nyt on syytä olla höyhenet pörhöllään! Aku Ankka-lehti 
>on tuonut unohtumattoman hauskoja lukuhetkiä suomalaisille jo so vuoden 
>ajan. Juhlan kunniaksi Disney-hahmot riemastuttavat viidessä hauskassa 
>postikortissa. Lähetä iloinen tervehdys ystävälle tai käytä kortit omaksi 

"Now you have a good reason to ruffle your feathers! Aku Ankka -magazine 
has brought unforgettably funny moments for Finns for 50 years. To 
celebrate the occasion Disney characters delight in five funny post cards. 
Send a happy greeting to a friend or use the cards for your own pleasure!"
