Indexer Notes

Even humorous comics like Gabby Hayes came in for Comics Code Authority censorship; in the Fawcett original of this story, for example, Gabby is trapped by the bad guys in a fire and rescued by a squirrel biting through the ropes on his wrists. But to satisfy the censors Charlton eliminated all the flames and just left Gabby sitting on a log with the squirrel gnawing the ropes with no fire in evidence--even though Gabby is still talking about it!?

Indexer Notes

This reprint was in fact edited to satisfy Comics Code Authority censors. For example, when the villain cracks the hero Falcon over the head, in the original Fawcett version he does so with the butt of a pistol--when Charlton ran the story the pistol is gone and he clobbers Falcon with a bare fist.

Indexer Notes

Even funny comics like Gabby Hayes came in for censorship in reprints to satisfy the Comics Code Authority. In this story the changes are primarily the removal of all sound-effect words. CLICK for the camera shutter, BZZZ for the bees, and SPLASH for water were apparently OK, but all of the following apparently seditious sound effects were deleted from the Charlton version of the story: SOCK for a punch, PLOP for a watery slap, SPLAT for dumping water on a bad guy, SPLASH (the second time it apparently wasn't OK), and in the final fight two SOCKs, two WHUMPs, a CRASH, and a CRACK.

Indexer Notes

In this reprint, in order to appease the Comics Code Authority censors, every single sound effect word in the Fawcett original (the usual collection of SOCK, WHACK, SPLASH and the like) have all been eliminated from the story. Apparently you could show Gabby hit somebody, but you couldn't have a sound effect to go with the punch.
