Story Identification Time

I'm trying to enlist people from the Disney Comics Forum to help me identify a few stories so I can index this.  Three of the stories are Duck Avenger things that I was able to find easily enough just by looking at the relevant index, but the others are non-Duck-Avenger related, and try as I might, I've been unable to find them.  They're all Italian, and they're probably all from the late seventies; no later than '81, obviously.  If you can identify any of them, leave a comment there or here.  This will make you officially awesome.

Otherwise, c'mon in!

…ya filthy degenerate...
