Uncle Scrooge And The Hidden Cultural Crisis

So, the other day, I received my set of the first two volumes of Fantagraphics collection of Don Rosa's duck work...

...and when I opened the box to gaze upon my new treasure, one of my college-aged employees looked at it, and asked, "Who's Uncle Scrooge?"

WHAT.

THE.

HELL.



How is this even remotely possible?!?

This is a cultural emergency.

Forget anything else in your life.

This week, make it your job--your sacred quest--to inform people about Uncle Scrooge.

Find a child. Find a co-worker. Find a Gen-Xer or a millennial or whatever they call the kids these days. And tell them about Uncle Scrooge. Show them this video:


Don't let the legacy of Scrooge McDuck fade away.
