I know it too! It's "Gambadilegno e il progetto mai visto" (I TL 1951-B)
where Pete goes back in time and tries to prevent Walt from inventing
Mickey. One weird story, if you ask me. Seems to me that the time-machine
can transport comic characters to real world also. Pete never stopped to
think that perhaps he would cease to exist if Mickey didn't. 

Another fun example of real/comic world interference stories is "Topolino
all'inseguimento dell'anacronismo multiuso" (I TL 1857-C) where Goofy
leaves an object when he and Mickey are in the past. In the end there is a
short period when Mickey and all other Disney characters are actually
Picasso characters. Wild! What a world it would be!
