Indexer Notes

This story was re-made, almost word for word, and re-titled "Dimension Invention" in "Archie's Pal Jughead" #62 (July, 1960). The story was re-made again, almost word for word, 10 years later in "That Wilkin Boy" # 9 (September 1970), with Bingo's Uncle Herman replacing Jughead's and Bingo Wilkin replacing Jughead.
