Notes: In the first panel of page 3, Silly and Ziggy are advised to “Watch out for those steel pennies,” a reference to the zinc-plated steel cents produced by the Bureau of the Mint in 1943 as a wartime conservation measure. In the last panel on page 6, Silly and Ziggy disguise themselves as Creeper and Crawler.

Notes: “Japs” on “an island in the Pacific” are depicted as yellow slant-eyed pointy-eared pigs, except in splash (yellow monkey). In the last panel on page 5, two such soldiers commit “hali-kali” (i.e., hara-kiri or seppuku), oddly enough by shooting each other. On page 7, an ape and a monkey take exception when Ziggy derides the Japanese soldiers as “apes” and “monkeys”; Ziggy comments, “Since when can monkeys and apes talk? Next thing you know, they'll have pigs talking in these stories!” In the second panel of page 8, Ziggy kills a Japanese soldier with a rifle shot.
