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. :-)

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?
"This is quite a mystery! Let's sit down with some pop and sandwiches
and figure it out!"
(Which Barks story?) :-)
