Star peg-legged kicker for the Aviators football team.
Yellow Beak is a green, salty pirate parrot who kicks for the Aviators football team with a peg-leg. Despite his refusal to remove his pirate hat and bandanna, Beak holds several kicking records in both franchise and league history. His motivation stems from his love not of Hall-of-Famers, Morten Anderson nor Jan Stenerud, but of a kicker named Tom Dempsey who kicked a NFL record 63-yd FG in 1970 that stood for over four decades. Influenced by a Sports Illustrated article about a club-footed man who played for the Saints, Yellow Beak kicked a league-record 53-yd FG against the Bow-Dazzlers in 2015.
Donald Duck Finds Pirate Gold (1949)
In a quest with Quack Pack players, Donald, Huey, Dewey and Louie, Yellow Beak is menaced by Catamounts “Black Pete” and his two henchmen in order to obtain a treasure map that leads to the infamous British pirate Henry Morgan's treasure.
This tale was originally planned for a cartoon called "Morgan's Ghost" which was to feature Mickey, Donald, Goofy and Pete, but was never produced.
It was finally presented by Carl Barks in its familiar "duck form" in Dell's "Donald Duck Finds Pirate Gold" (1949).
"Donald Duck Finds Pirate Gold" (1949) was filled with several first timers:
- First Disney comic book to feature an original story and artwork
- First Disney comic book to be sold commercially
- First time Carl Barks worked on a comic book
