  • The Mongoose is unique among Bell Feature characters as the only strip to appear in six separate books, rotating throughout the company's entire selection of titles (with the exception of The Funny Comics, which exclusively published the adventures of "Dizzy Don").
  • Due to the bizarre publishing schedule of The Mongoose stories mentioned above, Bell Features lack of proper dating, and the fact that the character never had an "origin" story, it is nearly impossible to determine the character's actual first appearance. The closest we can get is between Triumph Comics #24 and Dime Comics #22, both estimated to have been published February-March, 1945.
