During the last half of its long run, the Dell Four Color series began placing , on its last page or so, an educational short often related to whatever that particular issue was about.Gold Key continued this for their first few years too. Since so many of the series were Westerns, there were alot of Western facts put forth for the boomer kid with his cap gun and coonskin cap.
