Dr. Woggo is a tribute to Elmer "Wog" Woggon's character (and medicine show man) The Great Gusto, who appeared in the comic strip "Big Chief Wahoo". Woggon's brother, Bill, had worked on that strip and was currently doing the Dotty and Ditto feature in this issue.

Indexer Notes

Originally credited "Al Camy?", but not him. The faces and layout have very much in common with Harrison's signed Boy Buddies story in Hangman #8. He is credited on pencils, and the inker could be Weisbecker, who is credited on ink on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who.
