About the Author
Richard Timothy "Dick" Kinney (December 15, 1916 in Utah – March 24, 1985 in Glendale, California) was an American animator and comic book writer. His comic book work was mostly in Disney comics, writing stories featuring Donald Duck and Scrooge McDuck. He was the writer who, along with artist Al Hubbard, created Fethry Duck and Hard Haid Moe. Kinney is the younger brother of fellow Disney animator Jack Kinney. Earlier, as an animation writer, Kinney was part of the story crew on various Disney, Walter Lantz Productions, UPA and Jack Kinney Productions/King Features Syndicate theatrical and TV cartoons. The Lantz cartoon "Niagara Fools," featuring Woody Woodpecker, represented perhaps Kinney's most fondly remembered original storyline. Later, Kinney would remake the story for comics with Fethry Duck in, essentially, the Woody role.
Allan "Al" Hubbard (1913–1984, d. Fallbrook, California) joined the Disney animation department in 1937 then left in 1941 to become a full-time comics artist.
