Beginning with issue #4 (Winter 1941-42) Jackpot also featured Archie and his gang, written and drawn by Bob Montana. Archie's stories in Jackpot Comics are notable for featuring the first appearance of his friend Reggie Mantle; originally named 'Scotty' in #5 (Spring 1942), and then Reggie in #6 (Summer 1942). From issue #5, the Steel Sterling supporting characters Clancey and Looney had their own humor strip for two issues, while later issues featured other humor strips: "Senor Siesta" by Don Dean in issue #7 (Autumn 1942), "Cubby the Bear" in #8 and "It Shouldn't Happen to a Dog" in #8-9, all by Joe Edwards, and "Porkchops" in #9.
With issue #10 (Summer 1943), Jackpot Comics changed its title to Jolly Jingles and also changed focus: Instead of being a 'best of' anthology of the company's characters, it was now an anthology of original funny animal characters. Issue #10 introduced Super Duck, the company's longest-lasting funny animal character. The series was canceled with #16 (Winter 1944-1945), and Super Duck was given his own title.
