Indexer Notes

Writer Vic Lockman will re-use the notion of a transporter device in the form of an old car taking a character on a continent-spanning “instantrip” in a story from late 1979, a dozen or so years later. See Bugs Bunny “King for a Day” – Bugs Bunny (Western, 1962 Series) #217 (February 1980) – where Bugs Bunny unwittingly takes the “instantrip” in a transporter/car to a far-off “rabbit kingdom”, where he become a captive, hard-laboring king. Not only is the device in the form of an old car, but the process is also referred to as an “instantrip” in both stories.
