Well, that wasn't that difficult. I took the Dutch Barks list (from ftp.
lysator.liu.se: pub/comics/disney/dutch), removed all stories from Uncle
Scrooge, and all stories containing 10 pages or less. Then I filtered out
the stories that have Scrooge in a significant role, and this is what

Some remarks:
- I'm not sure about the 3 'script only' stories, as I have never seen them.
- I don't know if you would call all of these 'adventure' stories. What
  is the definition of an 'adventure' story?
- I also skipped stories with Huey, Dewey and Louie as main characters.

Disney did at least 4 albums, not counting Don Rosa's "Donald and Scrooge".

Gladstone and Disney started a few Barks album series:
- WD's Comics and Stories (51 issues; last issue released now: 12?)
- Firestone Giveaways (1 issue)
- Uncle Scrooge one page gags (2 issues)
- Gyro Gearloose (8 issues? released 2 issues?)

Little chance. Don is a Duck man, not a Mouse man.
