Indexer Notes

Copr. 1945 by Howard R. Garris.

Gaylord Du Bois writer credit per Gaylord Du Bois, Gaylord Du Bois's Account Books Sorted by Title compiled from the original account books by Randall W. Scott (Michigan State University Libraries 1985) 203 leaves ; 28 cm. -- Photocopy of computer printout. -- Call no.: PN6727.D77 A2S35 1985, page 5, which states: "Uncle Wiggily. 10p. For Animal Comics #17. Billed August 28, 1944."

The page count was reduced to 8 pages, but is told in what must have been the original 79 panel script. Had it been published as the original 10-page story, it would have averaged one 7-panel page and nine 8-panel pages (7-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8 or 7-8-8-8-9-8-8-8-9-6 or some other combination). As published, the panel-count per page presents as: 9-10-10-10-10-11-11-8. Artist H. R. McBride makes it look effortless, a testimony both to his graphic skill and talent, and to Du Bois's script narrative.
