Italian court orders Tweety and Donald Duck to testify – Dec 5, 2007

An Italian court has ordered Tweety the animated bird, along with Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and his girlfriend Daisy, to testify in a counterfeiting case.

A court in Naples made a clerical error and sent a summons ordering the characters to appear Friday in a trial. The summons cites Titti, Paperino, Paperina, Topolino – the characters’ Italian names – as the aggreived parties in the trial of a man accused of counterfeiting Disney and Warner Brothers products.
