Here's a mystery: a one page comic titled "Randy," which looks to be from the Ketcham studio. It appeared in a 1970 issue of the Catholic-themed comic book TREASURE CHEST.
Who exactly drew this and why, I don't know. The gag is pretty generic. I know that "Randy" was an occasional series that appeared in TREASURE CHEST. I don't know if it ever graduated from one-pager fillers to whole stories. Looks like George Pflaum, who created the comic book, hired some of Ketcham's stable of artists to create this content. Ketcham had a good number who were busy with the extensive DENNIS THE MENACE comic books. A few pages for TREASURE CHEST must have been added to their load. At least, that's my guess.
