Harry summarized Daisy's nieces' history:
> 4. 1960 Dell Giant #33 (Daisy D. and U$ Showtime). If this comic was
> published after DDD 1150, the Price Guide is wrong about it
> being the first (named) appearance of AM&J.
Now I've checked the Swedish publications of the stories in Giant #33,
and I didn't find Daisy's nieces anywhere. The only story I couldn't
check was the 10-page Gyro story "Bad Deed Club's Annual Picnic", as
it hasn't been published in Sweden. Are AM&J really in it, or is that
Overstreet note totally off?
> AM&J have at least been the backup-stories in the Ludwig Von Drake comic.
> Was this before or after WDC 308?
They are the title characters of some stories in Ludwig Von Drake #1-4
from December 1961 to May 1962, a long time before WDC 308 (May 1966).
There's also the Phil DeLara's "Clubhouse Crashers" from Giant #38
(Nov. '60), his "The Bewitched Dolls" from Giant #39, and Bradbury's
"The Toy Testers" from Giant #47 (Aug. '61). (I've been looking at
"April, May, and June", "Daisy's nieces", and "Donald's nephews and
Daisy's nieces" in Alberto Becattini's Disney Index.)
