Indexer Notes

First (?) appearance of Taffy, one of many Archie clones published by Archie in the 1940s and 1950s. Taffy's differentiating characteristics are her boy-craziness and constant use of 1940s teenage slang.

Indexer Notes

It's amazing that this comedy series with a dumb blonde protagonist and good-for-nothing boyfriend not only predated radio's My Friend Irma debut by five years but that Suzie also went west four years before the film My Friend Irma Goes West!
