All Brazilian stories where Gabi appears were published in 1996, 1997 and
*except* one that is from 1992. But as far as I know, this one is an old
unused non-Disney script created by Abril Jovem studio (when they
used to produce even non-Disney scripts) which was adapted later to become
a Joe Carioca story. So, the first Gabi's story is in fact B 960233 "Boca
where Rosinha introduces Carioca to her newly-arrived niece (and then Joe
to wear a silly Easter rabbit costume just to amuse the spoiled girl).

And, Rich:

There are 10 stories with Gabi, but only two of them
feature Gabi annoying Zico and Zeca (Carioca's nephews) in
a way somewhat similar to Melody with Mickey's nephews.
Gabi usually annoys Carioca himself every time he tries to go
out with Rosinha (and Rosinha's father, Rocha Vaz, really
enjoys that! ;-)
