Yes, it is. I've seen this before. It's mentioned in some
Dutch Donald-Duck-jubilee-book, which is not in my
posession, but I've seen it in the local library and I'll
try to look it up and post the full title. Other Dutch
DCML-members will probably be able to shed some light on
As far as I can remember it, it was exactly like you say.
Some Scottish sourdough Duck turns up and tells Donald to
save his money. It was suggested in this book that this
character is clearly a forerunner of $crooge McDuck.
I'll try to find out if Carl Barks is mentioned as having
worked on this cartoon.
