Issue Notes

Almost all of the content of this comic consists of newspaper strip reprints modified to fit comic book format. The dates of publication of these strips have, in practically all cases, been removed.

The usual next issue’s on sale date is missing from the “Let's Get into a Huddle” page in #24, but this issue (#25) contains the statement, “For two years now we have been coming to you in FAMOUS FUNNIES every month - on the 15th of every month.”
