History: (Uncanny Tales I#23/6 (fb) - BTS) - George was always being asked questions by his son Johnny. George would always Johnny's questions in great detail, only to have Johnny repeat the same question moments later. George grew disillusioned with teaching his son anything.
(Uncanny Tales I#23/6) - George began answering all of Johnny's questions with outlandish lies. He told Johnny he could fly if he flapped his arms, the sun went down at night because it was lazy, and numerous other fibs. When Johnny asked where he came from George told him the stork brought him after George blew a magic horn. George handed Johnny his moose-calling horn only to find out the horn really was magic. Johnny blew the horn, and within moments the sky was flooded with storks delivering hundreds of babies to George's hunting lodge.
Comments: Created by an unnamed writer and Sheldon Moldoff.
As with many 1950's and 1960's Marvel monster stories, this
story is not confirmed as part of Earth-616 continuity, but there's nothing
to exclude it either.
