Theresa:  I believe that the story you mentioned must be "For Mycket
Laskeblask" (Fo(e)r Mycket La(e)skeblask)"  or "Lemonade Looney", D7734. 
It was an 11 - page story drawn by Daniel Branca, and published in

Mickey stories in my Donald Weekly than not at all.  ideally, I agree with
you, however, that it would be best to have them segregated.  I would
rather have a "Duck" weekly, AND a "Mouse" weekly, AND a monthly giant
comic with all the OTHER Disney Characters, AND a Duck monthly for longer
epic stories, AND.....
