Interesting.  So Gabi was created for the Carioca Universe in 
order to adapt this unused non-Disney script? Now she is a regular.  
Thanks for that insight.

I have this comic! :-)  I didn't know that was her first appearance.

Hmmm. Now I wonder if Gabi has a "twin" (like Melody & Millie),
too?  Of course, her twin's name would have to be Xena. 
Just kidding.  LOL! :-)

Then, do you think *that* is her primary role in the Carioca
Universe?  Poor Jose.  He has such a laundry list of bad things
that are just waiting for him when he awakes each day. :-)
