A few years earlier in the town of Kemi, a similar event occurred. The international press caught hold of it and began exaggerating the reports, claiming that Donald Duck was banned in Finland due to his lack of pants and his unmarried relationship with Daisy. This is where things get a little weird. As the reports in foreign papers filtered back to Finland the local tabloids weren’t outraged at the false reports. Instead, they ran stories at the international reaction that the ban was receiving, saying Donald Duck banned in Finland because he has no trousers. This was of course wrong, but what was the result?
Within a few months it all blew over. Everyone forgot about the big ban and Donald Duck became even more popular than ever. In fact, in neighboring Sweden watching Donald Duck cartoons on Christmas eve has become a tradition.
