There are some Brazilian Disney comics with her as the protagonist, where she's part of a group of friends composed of Beckett (the Aracuan Bird of the movie The Three Caballeros) and original characters Neptunia, Olympia, and Walter. Dickie and her four close friends possibly are studying journalism at some university of Duckburg, because of her clear connection to the reporter career, which was shown in various comic stories. Despite these spin-off stories taking place in Duckburg, they do not include appearances of other character from the Donald Duck-themed comic books or animation.
Despite the character's success in Brazil, she stopped being used by Italian authors who considered her too tied to a '60s teenager social context that does not exist anymore. To keep using the character, she was still used in some Donald Duck-themed takes on classic literature. Recently, Dickie has resurfaced in Italian Disney comics as a reporter, occasionally seen working for the County Conscience, Scrooge's younger brother Gideon McDuck's newspaper.

- Dickie's age and appearance depends a great deal on the writer and artist.
- For example, she will sometimes have white human-like feet or regular orange duck feet. The former was more common in earlier stories featuring her, but in more recent stories the latter version is more common.
- Sometimes she is roughly the same age as Huey, Dewey and Louie, while others show her as is she a much older teenager.
- A popular theory among fans is that Dickie is the grandchild of Scrooge, because she addresses him by titles such as "Gramps" and "Grandpappy", through out her debut comic.
- However according to Disney that theory is false. The English release of The Minor's Granddaughter, has printed on back page "...Scrooge learns that during a brief marriage Goldie acquired a family."
