So when do we get new episodes again? I may have my issues with/reservations about the show, but I miss seeing it pop up every Sunday morning on my Amazon Prime account.

I know. I know. First-world problems, but curse me kilts, they’re my first-world problems! 😉

Merry Christmas and a Happy Birthday to me! Love these Funko POP! figures…

Tonight, I was practically overcome with glee to tell my wife about the deals I got at Subway (coupon for a free six-inch sub…with the purchase of a drink!) and Walmart (discounts of the 75 percent off variety!). This tells me three things, which I’ll count out in letters and corresponding pictures: a.) I’m becoming an old man; b.) my life is inexorably average, ordinary, and boring; and c.) a lifetime of reading Uncle Scrooge comics has rubbed off on me, but not in ways that translate into a binful of money…

Before you bid adieu to the Christmas season (which I won’t be bidding adieu to for another week or so), here is one of Carl Barks’ greatest yarns, “A Christmas for Shacktown,” from Four Color #367 (January 1952).

If I were a Disney animation executive, I’d have this story lifted wholesale from the printed page, without changing a word, and scheduled to air as a primetime animated Christmas special in December 2018.

Now, that would be a Christmas miracle…

Sidenote: Notice how Scrooge utters variations of the phrase “only a poor old man” at different intervals in the story. Obviously, it was kicking around in the Good Duck Artist’s head, probably because “Only a Poor Old Man,” a.k.a. Uncle Scrooge #1, was mere months away from being published in Four Color #386 (March 1952).

I hope your New Year is a duck-blur of race cars, lasers, and aeroplanes. I hope you solve some mysteries and rewrite history. I hope your 2018 is filled with tales of derring-do bad and good luck tales (not pony tales or cotton tales, though). And at the end, I hope you look back on it all and have only one thing to say…

“Woo-oo!”

Happy New Year, everyone!

Tomorrow, it’s the last Uncle Scrooge of the year, featuring the return of O.K. Quack!

Which cover is your favorite? One of them looks like it was meant for Donald Duck before that title was put on hiatus…

Hoping your holiday has been filled with joy and goodwill! Remember: Christmas doesn’t end on the 25th, no matter what the radio stations may think…
