Indexer Notes

Art submitted on February 15 (first ten pages) and March 15, 1951 (rest of story). Synopsis by Michael Barrier from "Carl Barks and the Art of the Comic Book" (1982).
Reprinted from the reprint in Walt Disney's Christmas Parade #8, evidence being the code numbers on the first page. Apparently the art was photographed from the printed pages, as it's muddy and there's showthrough from the back side.
