Abstract
This paper examines the ethnic-marked names created by Carl Barks, the writer/artist of one of the most popular Walt Disney comic book series of the 1950s and 1960s. My thesis is that, in the years following World War II, many Americans had isolationist feelings, and one of the reasons for the success of the Uncle $crooge comic books is that they fed into these feelings on almost a subconscious level.
