Added DiffLines:

* ExecutiveMeddling: Barks' comics often suffered from this. Several stories that were considered inappropriate were censored or just thrown out entirely, others were cut down to make room for adverts. Some material is most likely lost forever.
** One problem for his editors was that Barks had a taste for Westerns and horror films, and liked to incorporate such elements in his stories. Mummies, werewolves, zombies, magical and cursed objects, invisible men, Yetis, ghost ships, and skeletons entombed in castle walls all turn up in various stories. Some of his ideas were considered overly violent or creepy for an underage audience.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Mundanger}}: "Vacation Time", a story of his from 1950, is notorious for its main antagonist being not anything you would call a supervillain, but rather a common {{Jerkass}} who still manages to get disturbingly close to ''actually killing'' Donald and his nephews without actually trying.

Carl Barks (1901-2000) was a Creator/{{Disney}} writer and artist who made comics set in the ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse from 1942 to 1966. He was known as ''the Good Duck Artist'' by the readers for much of this time due to a Disney company rule which forbade the comic authors' names from being featured in their magazines.

* TangledFamilyTree: Barks worked out his own genealogy tree on how the major and minor characters of the Duck and McDuck families are related to each other, including several generations of ancestors. Technically he created most of the characters in it, but it was compiled for the masses to see by Rosa.

* FurryConfusion: Barks actually points it out in one panel. The anthropomorphic Duck protagonists briefly appear next to non-sentient realistic Ducks. The main characters are essentially human, while the others are animals.

* BreakoutCharacter: Scrooge [=McDuck=].

to:

* BreakoutCharacter: Scrooge [=McDuck=]. Barks created him as a one-shot character for the story "Christmas on Bear Mountain" (1947) Then he decided to bring him back in the horror-themed story "The Old Castle's Secret" (1948), where Scrooge is effectively the co-protagonist and receives much of the spotlight. Barks then started using him as a permanent addition to Donald's supporting cast, and other Disney writers started following his example. By 1952, Scrooge was popular enough for the publisher Western Publishing to give him his own comic book series. Barks' stories "Only a Poor Old Man" (1952) and "Back to the Klondike" (1953) were new origin stories for Scrooge. Subsequent stories by both Barks and other writers introduced villains, rivals, romantic interests, and supporting characters for him. The Disney Ducks' stories more often revolve around him, rather than his hired assistants (sidekicks) Donald, Huey, Louie, and Dewey. He is by far one of the most popular Disney comics characters, and several writers and readers consider him the the real protagonist among the various members of the cast. Not bad for a character that was only supposed to appear once.
