Indexer Notes

Story submitted June 29, 1950. Comment: "Most of the characters in this story are humans, rather than humanoid dogs; Barks had used human characters in earlier stories, but never so prominently as in this one, and Western's editors did not approve." Comment and story synopsis by Michael Barrier from "Carl Barks and the Art of the Comic Book" (1982).
