Indexer Notes

As mentioned in the story, this is a sequel to another text story detailing Minnie and Oscar's first date, entitled "Big Date". The earliest indexed instance of that first story is in Chic Young's Dagwood Comics (Harvey, 1950 series) #134, although since that issue was published well after the first indexed instance of the sequel story, there must be an earlier instance of "Big Date" that has not yet been indexed.
