There's a nice example (parody?) of such splattering in a Monty Python 
scene. About "Salad Days" or something like that. Very, very funny! One 
of the few times I didn't faint. :-)

>> Other examples of Barks horror stories would be 'the Terror of the

In 'the Terror of the River!!', there's a monster living in a river.

'The Firebug' is about firebugs who are putting Duckburg afire. (As 
written and drawn by Barks, this story happended for real. No dream

Sounds very funny! Is this a Gottfredson story?

Are there other mad dentist Disney stories?
