This is divided into various "universes". Hopefully this will make
it easier to find the character you are looking for (even if you don't

Bell in a Duck story. (In a few cases I have listed the character
The Duck "universe"
The Duck comics are the most famous and celebrated Disney
comics originally produced for comic books, and
Carl Barks's Duck comics
are among the most cherished comics of all time.
David Gerstein has written a
"Donald Duck Universe Guide"
for Egmont's writers.
It lists places and characters in most duck stories by
Carl Barks and Don Rosa.
Characters in duck stories by Barks
This includes already existing characters (such as Donald and Grandma)
as well as characters that Barks invented (like Scrooge and Gladstone).
It also includes relations that Barks never used in a story, but

Other older characters
Various later characters

actually is created by Barks, and thus listed among the
Barks characters above. (The original Italian names are given in
parentheses where there are different English names.)

One way into those comics, if you haven't read them, is

"The Mickey Mouse Universe"
for Egmont as a guide for writers of Mickey Mouse comics.
It lists places and characters in Gottfredson's Mickey stories.
