History:

(Krazy Komics I#1/9 (fb) - BTS) - The young Pan lived in the forest where he enjoyed playing symphonies for the animals. Among those forest animals he counted Brownie Bear as his personal friend.

(Krazy Komics I#1/9) - The carefree Little Pan enjoyed playing his symphony on the syrinx entertaining the creatures of the forest when he was interrupted by distant sobs. Annoyed someone would spoil his music, Pan set out to investigate and came across a small cottage in the woods where a young girl was crying. Having met the young girl, Pan learned she'd been kidnapped and held for ransom by three men. Eager to learn more about the men, Pan went to check on the three men in the next room, where he attempted to scare the men away., Pan, however, got himself captured and was placed in a birdcage. Pan then used his syrinx to call for help, the call was answered by Pan's friend Brownie Bear who charged at the cottage. Seeing the ferocious bear, the three kidnappers fled the cottage, turning themselves into the police, believing it to be the only safe place. With the threat dealt with, Pan said his goodbyes and returned to play his symphony.

Comments: Created by an unrevealed creative team.

Little Pan, the mythical half human, half goat creature actually acted more like a 1930s mobster cliche with a very thick New York accent.

Although unrevealed it's well possible Little Pan grew up to become Pan.

Krazy Komics was a Golden Age comedy series which ran for 26 issues from July 1942 to Spring 1947 and a second volume of two issues from August 1948 to November 1948. The series features a cascade of different (mostly) animal-themed characters like Chester Chipmunk, Toughy Tomcat, Posty, Lolly and many others. Little Pan is one of the few who only appeared once.
