Hi everybody, this is my first message on this webstite.

I want to point out two mistakes I found. The first one is about Dewey Duck, one of Donald Duck's triplet nephews: his page, which I am linking below, wrongly spells his name as "Dewy".

The second mistake is that "Don Donald" (1937), and not "Mr. Duck Steps Out" (1940), is regarded as Daisy Duck's official debut, despite the fact that the female duck in "Don Donald" is a Mexican lady called Donna Duck, who has been confiremed to be an entirely different character:

Could you tell me how the female duck was confirmed to be an entirely different character if she was not really Daisy under a different name?

They were referred as two separate characters in a short 1940's storyline in the Donald Duck comic strip.

Well, first of all Carl Barks, who wrote the plot of "Mr. Duck Steps Out", said in an interview that

"Donna Duck was invented and incorporated into the story Don Donald before I came to the studio. I never associated that fiery Latin senorita with the more American-type Daisy Duck that came along later." (source: goo.gl/eQLLyN)

Plus, Daisy and Donna appeared together in many comics. Here is an example:

Finally, there are books written by Disney scholars, and approved by Disney, in which Daisy and Donna are presented as different characters:

Even websites of various Disney branches give "Mr. Duck Steps Out" as Daisy's debut:

As for the misspelling of Dewey, well, I don't think I need a source for that.

Since I am still new to this webstite, I ask it: what happens in cases like this, when someone points out a mistake? I don't see any edit button to correct the pages myself, does this mean that a moderator has to do it?

In order to control the integrity of the information on the site, you have to be approved as a researcher to add or edit information on the site. But if you're not up for that, this is the best way to alert us to any incorrect information. I'll change this as soon as I get the chance.
