Bell, Edison. Edison Bell is a child inventor who has adventures with his friends Nicky and Jerry and their pal robot "Frankie Stein,” who Bell invented. Bell et al. fight ordinary criminals and generally get into every kind of child- and later tween-inventor adventure possible, including meeting headhunters with a mechanical octopus idol, a coon-skinned hermit calling himself “King Robinson” and ruling a deserted island, and the Headless Horseman. Bell appears in stories with titles like “How to Smash an Atom,” “Rescue by Aero Kite,” and “‘Holy Horrors! Savages!’”
