Here come the animals
You'd better hide
They're going to stampede
Hey, there's a monkey
Watch where you step
I think he's just peed
Tonight, on another exciting installment of "Our Animal Pals" (as seen in comic books throughout history), we spotlight...a freak of nature? Awww, is that any way to talk about our pal, the Voltron of the natural world, the platypus? (No. No, it is not, Charlton Comics. In retaliation, we will sell your characters to National Periodicals and later turn Captain Atom into a galactic super-tyrant. Justice...for the platypus...is served!)
"Freaks of Nature!" from Blue Beetle v.2 #1 (June 1964), writer and artist unknown
So, ladies and gentlemen: the platypus. The Platypus.
Next time on "Our Animal Pals": either the baby kangaroo, or a giant mouse. We haven't figured out which one it is yet.
