Master Comics #78 (April 1947- Nyoka)

This Nyoka tale takes the jungle girl to the wilds of Australia in search of that continent's exotic animals. She is accompanied by the aptly named Professor Skatterbrane and has a series of comedic encounters while trying to capture various local fauna. Skatterbrane has no real use as a intellectual--a perfect stereotype of a forgetful and bumbling academic. Skatterbrane does redeem himself by masking the villain allowing Nyoka to administrator the knock out blow. Except for the encounter with Killer King and the liberation of the gold mine's discoverer this story is played for laughs.
