Dixon of the Mounted was a character created by E.T. Legault who starred in the first seven issues of Active Comics, beginning in 1942. Corporal Dixon would regularly need to go in search for his female companion, Ruth Barton, to rescue her from this or that.

Eventually, however, the character had to be abandoned because none of his creative team could figure out how to have him escape from the bowels of the earth.
