(Scrooge might be mean and harsh, but don’t worry, I will tame him to be gentle and considerate.)
Yes, it is an adaptation of Taming of the Shrew, with Scrooge playing the role of Katherine. It ends with Scrooge having to marry Brigitta or facing death. You know, the happy disney ending.
Another case of Scrooge ending up married against his will to Brigitta, this time in an ancient India alternate universe, which might also be an adaptation of something. The entire 30-page story consists of Scrooge trying to avoid being married off, and the in the end failing. Heartwarming stuff.
And then there is how for some reason, we are supposed to think that Scrooge is the asshole for taking steps to prevent this actual stalking going on in this story.
And of course this gem of an ending. Where the Duck avenger/Donald traps his uncle on a boat so that Brigitta can spend two week “romantic” cruise with him. It’s just the two of them on the boat, there is a note left for Scrooge, by Donald, reading: “Welcome to your nightmare” and the story closes with Scrooge yelling “Noooo!” from the boat.
Can you feel the fucking romance yet.
Exactly! There’s no way these stories would be published today if their genders were reversed. So creepy!
