Notes

This is the first episode of Buffalo Bill. The Spanish series Gora Gopal ran 18 episodes through the magazines "Super Pulgarcito" (1971), "Chito" (issues 8-13 in 1974), "Chito Extraordinario" (1974), "Super Mortadelo" (issues 103-106, 1980) and "Super Tio Vivo" (issue 98, 1980). A French version was printed consistently in Buffalo Bill (issues 1-18), including some episodes not published in Spain. (See wikipf.net).
