Adventures of Pinky Lee #1-5, July - October 1955.

Short-lived title that attempted to take advantage of the popularity of kiddie TV show host Pinky Lee, a former vaudevillian known for his comedic dancing, his boundless energy, and the fact that adults absolutely loathed him.

So frenetic were Lee's performances that he actualy collapsed on air, before an audience full of horrified children and their parents, due to a gruelling 6-day-a-week schedule. His collapse, and subsequent temporary absence from television, unfortunately coincided with the newsstand appearance of this comic.
