Double Date with Candy and Tippy

Candy 42 Tippy 1 Chemical Formula, Warfare

Just as Stan Lee reused only his own scripts when he refried Millie the Model stories, when Jack Mendelsohn reused old scripts as a writer for Tippy Teen at Tower, he reused only his own—his own Candy stories from Quality in the Fifties. They are indeed rewrites, some more, some less; the gag climaxing "Chemical Warfare" is different from the one ending "Chemical Formula."

The Tippy character Ashley Hartburn (think Reggie Mantle) comes directly from Candy's cast with no name change.

The first story in Tippy 1, "Great Skate," is by Mendelsohn, as I've mentioned, but I don't see an earlier version of it. There are a lot more Quality/Tower refries, but since I have a gap in Tippi issues on hand after 3, I'll stop here for now.
