A dancing gorilla???! Yes, there is no choice except to file this one under "weird". An off-beat oddball classic, L.B. Cole's artistic talent pulls off the gag.

Interior artwork is by Norman Nodel, Manny Stallman (with excellent inking - an early collaboration with John Giunta?), and a couple other decent artists who I don't recognize. This gorilla pre-dates DC's Silver Age "gorilla craze" when simians of all sorts were a regular feature on many DC comic covers.
