Notes

  • Tawky Tawny first appeared in Captain Marvel Adventures, Vol. 1 #79 (December 1947).[2]
  • He was created by Otto O. Binder and C.C. Beck.
  • In the comics, Tawky Tawny is a native of Earth-S, which made it impossible to co-exist with characters like Superman, who were part of Earth-One. However, on Earth-1A,[3] this is not the case, since all of the Fawcett Comics and DC Comics characters all co-exist with one another.[4]
  • How Tawny was transformed into a super-intelligent/humanoid tiger was never revealed in the series. In the comics, a wide variety of explanations are given, depending on which version of the character.
