General note

Cover title. All three stories in the issue have R.C.M.P. associations. "Hearts of the Yukon" depicts encounters between Scrooge McDuck and N.W.M.P. officers Sam Steele and Wiliam Scarth. Set in January 1898, Steele and Scarth arrive in Dawson City where McDuck has established himself as a successful prospector. Several locals, eager to distract the Mounties from their own malfeasance, falsely accuse McDuck of being a criminal kingpin. McDuck, returning from his claim, eventually persuades Steele of his innocence.

General note

In "Dawson: Imagination's doorway," an article rather than a cartoon, Geoffrey Blum discusses the historical foundations of Scrooge McDuck's backstory as a Klondike gold prospector. Blum notes that the R.C.M.P. characters in "Hearts of the Yukon" - Steele and Scarth - are real historical figures.

General note

In "Three little pigs in the Mounties," the title characters join the R.C.M.P. and are assigned to apprehend the Big Bad Wolf. Reprinted, with altered colouring, from Walt Disney's 3 Little Pigs and The wonderful magic lamp. The Lund Comics Collection also holds this work, and it is described separately in the finding aid.
