Behind the scenes

  • Colonel Worubu is said to have succeeded Colonel Weeks "who only works part-time now". This was probably a way to explain to Fantomen readers why Worubu and Weeks both appeared as Colonel of the Jungle Patrol, which was actually caused by reprints of older stories with Weeks as colonel being used side by side with newer stories with his successor Worubu.
