Comic StoryRhubarb (34 pages)
SynopsisA millionaire who owns the Brooklyn Loons baseball team befriends a tough yellow tomcat that he names "Rhubarb" after the slang term for a baseball argument. Three years later, the man dies and leaves the bulk of his fortune and the ball club to Rhubarb. The Loons' press agent Eric Yeager is named legal guardian of the cat and a running sub-plot is his attempts to marry Polly Sickles, who is allergic to the cat. At the climax, Rhubarb, who has been the good luck charm for the baseball team during a winning streak, is kidnapped by some gangsters who plan on Brooklyn losing the championship game without their lucky mascot.

NotesStory continues on inside back cover in black and white and concludes in color on back cover. Adaptation of 1951 movie "Rhubarb" based on book of same name by H. Allen Smith. Adaptation is fairly faithful to the movie until the very end, when several pages of storyline is condensed into four panels. A sequel to this story appears in Four Color (Dell, 1942 series) #466 (April 1953). Pencils, inks, and letters credits for this sequence from Alberto Becattini (May 14, 2007)
