In the "ancient times", the Weekly contains nearly only American stories.
The best stories from this period are almost all written and drawn by Carl Barks, who worked
from 1942 to 1967, and who is still regarded the best Duck story maker ever.
The stories in the Dutch weekly didn't dome directly from the USA: most of the time they were translated
from German or Danish. For instance, the Dutch names Dagobert (Scrooge) and Guus (Gladstone) were copied
from the German translations (by Erika Fuchs).

From 1953 on, there is also original Dutch work in the Weekly. Ed Lukacs is the main deliverer of
covers, and he also draws a story now and then.
