If McDonald's makes a duck sandwich, and calls it the McDuck, so they get sued by Disney?

In my childhood, my dad would occasionally refer to McDonalds as McDuck's, which I thought was odd.
The Buddy Holly music was also odd. Thank goodness for the 80's.

What if they have a Lewis Carroll holiday theme and call it a Scrooge McDuck?

Wikipeditors are all over the scandalous plot holes in "Perfect Strangers".

Quote:
In the sixth season episode "See You in September", it is revealed that Balki is a licensed nupitiki doctoruthiki, a Myposian marriage counselor. He administers the Myposian marriage test to Larry and Jennifer, to help them get over their fear of getting married. However, no mention was made of this in the second season episode "Since I Lost my Baby", when Balki and Larry attempt to save the Twinkacettis' marriage.

(Also it seems that Cousin Larry was originally going to be played by Louie Anderson. Huh.)

Balki may or may not have a sister named Yanna. In the episode "Sexual Harassment in Chicago", Balki said his tapestry was a gift from his sister Yanna, and he also mentioned missing his nieces and nephews at Christmas. However, when Larry and Jennifer get married, Balki says he never had a brother or sister.
Balki killed Yanna, didn't he?
