As far as I know this is the complete list. Some of them have been translated
to English.

Adolf Kabatek is the editor but definitely not the artist. I'm not sure about
that, but I remember something like they were drawn in South America, most
probably in Argentina. Kabatek has written some or all of the stories.

This is not a real series, but appears at random. I think it's even cut now.
There are stories from the Duck- and the Mouse-world, but I doubt that there
are more than 3-4 albums.

>Who can help me answering the next questions:

Answers as complete as possible (I have no access to my collection at the
moment :( ) see above.

This goes for me, too :))
