Will the Real Doodles Duck Please Stand Up

As you may or may not know, one of my lesser supporting characters is a duck called Doodles. I just discovered that he's not the only duck with this moniker.  According to the always useful Toonpedia there are two more! One (above) was created by Howard Post and ran in various DC publications.  This Doodles lived with his nephew, Lemuel, who was a good deal smarter and usually came out on top at the end of the story.  They first appeared in Animal Antics #40 (September, 1952). That same year Sheldon Mayer created an unrelated dimwitted Doodles Duck (below).

There's an entire Howie Post Doodles story on the great Cartoon Snap blog, here.
