Oh, yes, I agree!! It's the same silly scaredness I had of mummies when I
was little (also from Donald Duck actually), but they are seldom very evil
towards you (good thing the film The Mummy is pretty new...). It's the way
of showing up, silently, without warning, and then just staring with empty
eyes, that is so creepy... wow (and here's the thing - I love it! WHen I
was little I couldn't stop reading books about ghosts, see scary movies
and so on, but it certainly gives its intended effect... )

But wasn't it just recently (by Don Rosa) that ZB was a bit more explained
as a tragic figure to feel sorry for?
