    I wonder what came first, the dog or the planet. I'm betting the dog.

    The planet. That is how Disney got the name of course. It was the big space story at the time, and we know how much he liked the future,space and the related.

    Hewie, Louie and Dewey were featured in quite a few of Donalds shorts that appeared in theatres, What I think I remember hearing about Mickey's nepews is that they were invented for the Mickey Mouse comic book, and the characters that originated there never migrated to other Disney properties (though there was a WDW foil postcard with them on it, along with Mickey and Minnie in a baloon), Interestingly though many of the side characters from the Donald Duck books did make a migraton into other Disney projects, in part due to the television cartoons (Duck Tales)

    By betting on the dog, Jarod goes broke, and asks for money. LOL
