But if that was the case, why wouldn't Huey, Dewey and Louie MOVE to  
Tralla La the moment they figured it out?

There is a slight difference between Disney Comics and The Simpsons. Sure,  
both involve a lazy main character taking care of three kids and working  
for a greedy old man with extreme amounts of money, but in STYLE they are  
vastly different. What works in Simpsons doesn't work in Disney Comics.

The bizarre thing is that that idea actually works. I mean, the whole  
save-the-world-thingy is not very Disneyesque, but if they are astronauts,  
that explains everything. That explains why they leave their children with  
Donald, and in that explanation they COULD even show up in a story and  
then have to leave again later without bringing the kids along because,  
hey, bringing children with you to live in outer space would be cruel.

That's the best idea I've heard so far. Not sure I want to read it, but  
it's better than them living happily on the greatest place on Earth. If  
they moved to Tralla La, it makes no sense whatsoever that they didn't  
bring the kids.
