Trivia

This is the second of two Mechanix Illustrated shorts, both bearing the same title, produced by Fawcett Publications and released by Warner Bros. in 1938 as part of their Color Parade series. The first one was released 4 June 1938. The third one in the series was released 7 January 1939 as "No. 2," leaving us with two preceding editions, identically named, but without identifying numbers to separate them, except as separate entries in the Color Parade series, released five months apart from each other. In order to rectify this error, WB renamed this one No. 1, to coincide with the continuation of the series with No. 2, released the following month, but still leaving the actual first entry in the series without an identifying number, unless you want to call it "No. 0.
