In the Netherlands, there was one Disney comic album published in the
dialect of Limburg. (At least that's what I heard: I have never actually
seen it!) The album contains Barks stories, including the forest fire story
from VP#1.
The dialect of Limburg is one of the 4 official (recognised by the EU)
languages in the Netherlands.

In Germany, there have been several dialect albums. I can't wait to see the
one in Plattdüütsch, to be published in April.
This is the language that comes closest to the dialect of Groningen, the
part of the Netherlands where I come from.
