Thanks Ari,

1979 was the first year of my subscription, so it figures well. I just 
now realized that "Hupu" is not "Huey" in English, but Dewey... Only 
took 20+ years to figure that out. I feel so smart just now...

This still doesn't confirm if this pattern is used in all Egmont 
stories, or how widely this is used outside Finland.
