Where's Jug with th' hosses?
Genre:
western-frontier
Characters:
Red Ryder; Little Beaver; Thunder (horse); Jug (bankrobber); Sylvia; Doc Elliott; Kurt (bankrobber)
Synopsis:
The bank is robbed by four men, and the gold hidden. In the search for it, Little Beaver by chance catches the whole bag when out fishing in the creek.

Indexer Notes

The ghost artist here is Mike Arens. He is not credited to Red Ryder in Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but it is him. The horses at the first page, and the way the bankrobbers hold their guns with the thumbs up, is sure Arens. And the large hats "floating" on the heads of two of the robbers. On page three and four we have some of his black silhouettes, and on page nine is more of the "floating" hats. As only Arens makes them. Both layout and inking is Arens, but a little imitation of Harman on faces. Art ID by Steinar Ådland December 2010.
