If you didn’t know Jeeves (Lusky in Italian) is Rockerduck’s secretary, protégé, butler and partner and will always give his life to save his boss, I mean Rockerduck.
At least that's how it is in comics, while Nu-Ducktales, probably because of pop culture for people to recognize, Rockerduck and Jeeves made them like James Bond villains (burly bodyguard type with metal-plated teeth resembling the James Bond villain Jaws), which is by disgusting to me because Jeeves was always beautiful.
It just goes to show that the DT17 crew prefers those popular references like anime, Transformers, Marvel, Venture Bros., MLP, DC, rather than being understood in Duck comics and Duck cartoons. Certainly Rockerduck and Jeeves are not the only ones where they have been drastically changed.
I agree with you, it really would have been better if they had used Rockerduck better, but probably the DT17 writers were more pleased that Bradford would be Scrooge’s main rival rather than Glomgold and Rockerduck. Too bad they didn’t use the Beaks as a rival against Scrooge, but against Fenton.
And they made Scrooge like some kind of superhero where the world revolves around him, but the writers made a big mistake, because Scrooge is not a hero, he is the protagonist, and there is a difference in those two terms. Something like a combination of Superman and Batman.
I mean, DT17 made big mistakes, but they’re afraid to admit it. The DT17 had good potential, but made terrible mistakes that will be hard to correct.
