Behind the Scenes

Miss Tagama's name has changed several times over the years. In her first appearance in "Rex King" she was unnamed. In "The Frame-Up" she was referred to as Miss Longa, but from the story "Yes" and onwards she was called Miss Tagama (although at first her name was spelled Miss Tagam). In "T" Miss Tagama's first name is given as Tara, in "Battle of the Jungle Boys" as Taru, and in "The Kidnappers", she is first called Tanya and later on Tania. Tony DePaul used the name Taru when she appeared in "The Death of Diana Palmer Walker"; the first non-Lee Falk story to reference her marriage to President Luaga. In "The Twins' Futures", she is referred to as Taru Tagama-Luaga.
