Comic Book Short Story~ Whirlybirds "The Oasis"

    Desilu Studios' Whirlybirds had a fairly long run , 111 episodes from 1957 to 1960. It's a wonder it's almost forgotten today.

     The star of the show was the Bell 47 helicopter, and the studio worked closely with the Bell corporation in filming the show. The human stars were Kenneth Tobey and Craig Hill. Robert Altman directed many episodes.

Dell did a couple of one shots. One of two stories from Four Color #1216 (September-November 1961). Story by Gaylord Du Bois, Art by Ray Bailey
