Richard Timothy "Dick" Kinney (born December 15, 1916 in Utah-died March 24, 1985 in Glendale, California) was an American animator and comic book writer. His comic book work was mostly on Donald Duck and Scrooge McDuck stories. He was the writer, who, along with artist Al Hubbard, created Fethry Duck and Hard Haid Moe. He is the younger brother of fellow Disney animator Jack Kinney.
Earlier, as an animation writer, Kinney was part of the story crew on various Disney, Walter Lantz, UPA, and King Features theatrical and TV cartoons. The Lantz cartoon Niagara Fools, featuring Woody Woodpecker, represented perhaps Kinney's most fondly-remembered original storyline. Later, Kinney would remake the story for comics with Fethry Duck in, essentially, the Woody role. His contributions other outside of Disney include Mr. Magoo, The Alvin Show, The Deputy Dawg Show, and The Dick Tracey Show.
