Indexer Notes

Copr. 1944 by Johnny Gruelle Co. Writer credit per Du Bois Account Books.

The gag of Rory Lion's head half protruding through the window, but too big to permit access, while his roars frighten everyone, none of whom can identity the jaws? It echoes the plight of Dackel the Dachshund in Oskar Lebeck's Clementina the Flying Pig as adapted in Dell Junior Treasury. Lebeck was Du Bois's editor, collaborater, and good friend; the gag may have been homage ... or swiped, or cliché. (Dackel is stuck half-in / half-outside a hole in the burrow home, whose occupant fears the howls coming from Dackel in the dark are those of a ghost.)
