I wouldn't say that Barks didn't know what he was doing, since there's nothing wrong at all with this scene:
I'm more neutral about that. Didn't Barks himself occasionally show non-anthropomorphic animals talk among themselves? At the moment, I can only think of "Hang Gliders Be Hanged!" (written by Tom Anderson based on a Barks plot), which shows eagles talking to themselves, with a note saying their dialogues are translated for us: if I remember correctly, that was one of the scenes that were not in Barks' synopsis. Does anyone remembers some actual Barks examples?
Anyway, I'm fine witht the concept as long as it is not abused.
