By the 10s: Four Color Comics, Part 8!

fc0710
This installment begins with issue 710's "Francis the Talking Mule"! More after the jump!


fc0720
Issue 720 features what I think is the first TV adaptation cover-featured (at least for the divisible by 10 issues)... Gunsmoke!

fc0730
For the uninitiated, issue 730's Smokey Stover was another newspaper strip, one that introduced at least one new word to the English language!

fc0740
Issue 740 features Chilly Willy!

fc0750
Issue 750's "The Great Cat Family" was based on an episode of Disney's Wonderful World of Disney!

fc0760
Issue 760 featured the Hardy Boys, called "Walt Disney's" because it was based on the Hardy Boys mini-episodes that were part of the Mickey Mouse Club!

fc0770
I'm guessing issue 770's "Brave Eagle" was another movie adaptation...

fc0780
Captain Kangaroo looks a little scary on the cover of issue 780, doesn't he?

fc0790
Issue 790 is another Movie Classic!

fc0800
And issue 800 features another movie adaptation... why some of these were "Movie Classics" on the cover and others weren't is beyond me!

More coming up on Sunday!

    The Buccaneers is actually one of those 50's one-season tv series with 39 episodes available on a cheap Mill Creek DVD set. It actually develops as a continuing story with Robert Shaw's Dan Tempest not showing up immediately.
    If you liked Richard Greene in The Adventures of Robin Hood, you should check out The Buccaneers.
