Doesn't it appear in several (many?) other stories of
the same period in Italy. I wonder why the Italian
editors did not ask the artist (Bottaro) to draw them

And maybe also Martina? They published quite a few of
his stories lately. I noticed though, when the
dialogues are too violent, they badly soften it. For
instance, I learned that in the first Paperinik story,
Scrooge said to Donald that he "was not even able to
steal a thing from a blind and paralytic deaf-mute".
This was totally censored in the French reprint...
