Darkwing Duck comic
Gandra Dee's only appearance in any comic book was in the DuckTales/Darkwing Duck crossover story arc "Dangerous Currency". However, since the story was never approved by Disney, it is considered non-canon.
Gandra Dee appears in season 2 of DuckTales (2017). She is portrayed as a punk-rock scientist who doesn't kiss up to millionaires and does her own thing. She is also portrayed as being less stereotypically feminine in this version. Her design has changed from a blond-haired white chicken to a brunette-haired brown chicken.
- Her name is a reference to actress Sandra Dee.
