Indexer Notes

New story. Bob Ogle wrote the 1960s Tom and Jerry theatrical short “The Mouse from H.U.N.G.E.R.”, which the IMDB website describes thusly: “Secret agent Jerry-akin has to steal a giant refrigerator full of cheese, guarded by the evil Tom Thrush with a vast array of diabolical gadgets and traps. Of course, Jerry has a few tricks of his own.” As Bob Ogle was also writing comic book scripts for Western Publishing at the time, he would be a very likely candidate for author of this story.
