Indexer Notes

Yogi and Boo Boo are so perfectly characterized, and play out a series of such well-executed blackout gags, that this could easily have been an early Hanna-Barbera cartoon. Harvey Eisenberg’s lively art only adds to the great sense of fun.

Keywords

Indexer Notes

This entry is a remake of the Andy Panda and Charlie Chicken story from Walter Lantz New Funnies (Dell, 1946 Series) #212 (October 1954), written by Carl Fallberg and drawn by Lynn Karp. Since Huck didn’t have a sidekick, as Andy Panda had Charlie Chicken, he is paired with an old security guard named “Charley”. …Coincidence? Sufficient evidence to credit Carl Fallberg as writer.
