For the record, this was Foozy’s very first appearance.
King Guzzle had been knocked out so Oop took the opportunity to try on his crown. Guzzle came to, and snatched the crown off of Oop’s head, yelling “Gimme my crown, you bug-eyed wumbozee”. Foozy then spoke the very first words of his appearance in the strip:
