Good Morning !!

I guess Patrick introduced me and Karthik yesterday. My name is Varun Reddy, and I would be one of the two guest quizzers for the next 2 weeks. I came to know Patrick and Karthik through my association with the Indian Quizzing League. I will be posting our questions (mine and Karthik’s) on alternate days, starting today, for the next two weeks.

Q1. Connect these three gentlemen to the world of Animation (The gentlemean in the 3rd image is the one marked with the red-arrow, on the extreme left of the image)

Hint: A politician, an admiral and an animator 🙂

Answer: According to interviews by Taliaferro, Huey, Dewey, and Louie (the three nephews of Uncle Scrooge) were originally named after two political figures and an animator of the time:

Huey was named after Huey Long (1893–1935), Governor of, and later Senator from Louisiana

Dewey was named after Admiral George Dewey (1837–1917) of the Spanish–American War

Louie was named after animator Louie Schmitt (1908–1993)

The first correct answer was given by Shrey. Congrats ! Jamuna and Suresh also chipped in with the right answers. Well tried by Pervez, Jango and Tony (through Facebook)

The next question will be up shortly 🙂

    All of them were the people after whom the three brothers in 'Duck Tales' (An animated cartoon programme) got their names.
