Indexer Notes

Artist name correction from Kenner to Kennerly by Craig Delich 2013-11-23. He is verified as drawing this feature by the Who's Who.

The Who's Who doesn't indicate that a B. Holmes ever wrote/lettered this feature. It does list a B. Holmes as one of the studio personnel for Funnies, Inc. So a ? has been placed in the writer and letterer areas and his name removed.
