These questions weren't intended for me, but I'll try to answer them anyway.

Carl Barks, Al Taliaferro, Floyd Gottfredson, Paul Murry, Tony Strobl.

Barks: The Old Castle's Secret (4 Color 189)
Taliaferro: various Sunday pages from the 1940s.
Gottfredson: The Phantom Blot (dailies from 1939)
Murry: The Last Resort (WDC 152-154)
Strobl: Keelboat To Kickapoo (Vacation in Disneyland 1)

Probably because I read them at the "right" age, about 8-10 years.

> - What are your favourite scenes?
When the money dam bursts in 'Only a Poor Old Man'

When the parrot in "the Pixilated Parrot" (Barks) gets in love and counts
the chicks of a female parrot.
Many Mickey Sunday pages by Manuel Gonzales, featuring Goofy and/or
Ellsworth, usually from 1946-52.
When Goofy makes sound effects in a radio show (don't remember which story,
but probably a Goofy Dell One-Shot with art by Phil de Lara).

Donald, Goofy.

That happens every day.

That must have been before the age of 4, so I don't remember. 
One of the first I remember was a story, probably by Strobl, with Donald,
the nephews and Bolivar from 1958-9, I guess. I remember Bolivar sleeping on
the porch in front of the door (or perhaps just lying there).
