Tin Men Series notes (lost name of original author)

Superman 42-12-31 Mystery Ship concludes on the 31st and the announcer says that there is no show on 1-1-43 so that the Cotton Bowl can be broadcast. 1-1-43 is a Friday so the first "Tin Men" show would have been broadcast on Monday, 1-4-43.

The last episode of the series concludes on a day that is not a Friday which means that the January 22 date is wrong. The last episode starts a new story line which would mean a Thursday date. The final episode should be dated January 21, 1943 which means that there are 14 episodes.

The Superman 43-01-05 is the first available episode and seems to logically flow as it involves the disappearance of the Tin Man, the plan and the role of Dr. Livewright.

The episode that resolves all of issues and accuses Dr. Livewright of defrauding the stockholders is dated 43-01-12. This episode introduces Dr. Leander Cameron. The Dr. Cameron thread continues this storyline. Thus, the 43-01-12 episode should be redated as it occurs before the introduction of the Vulture. It becomes the second available episode in this thread but not the second episode in the storyline.

The episode dated 43-01-06 continues the Dr. Cameron thread. It introduces the Vulture and has the Vulture stealing the miniature Tin Man from Dr. Cameron. This episode needs to be redated as it occurs after Dr. Livewright has been exposed.

The episode dated 43-01-08 follows the 43-01-06 episode. The problem is that the date of this episode is shown as a Friday but the announcer asks the audience to tune in tomorrow for the next episode which means it is not a Friday episode. This episode needs to be redated.

The episode dated 43-01-15 is the fifth available episode and is a Friday episode per the date and per the announcer. I assumed that this date is correct for this storyline and the pre and post episodes are dated from this one and one other.

The episode 43-01-18 follows the previous episode. January 18 was a Monday and logically follows January 15th as a Superman episode.

The episode dated 43-01-20 follows the previous episode, dated 1-18, but there is at least a one episode gap in the story line.  Jimmy was captured in the previous episode but not the January 18 episode.

The last episode is dated January 22 and follows the January 20th episode, wraps up the series and is not a Friday per the announcer (tune in tomorrow...). This episode needs to be redated.

The log lists two episodes of the 1942 "The Wolfe" storyline, parts 9 and 11, as being extant. My own copies were mislabelled, part 9 seeming to be the end of the story, which would make it part 11, and part 11 being an episode of "The Tiny Men."

Also, "Lita the Leopard Woman" should be "Nita the Leopard Woman." Her name is only used in a few of the early episodes, where the announcer is quite clear in his pronunciation. Later, she is described as the leopard cult's LEADER, the Leopard Woman. I'm guessing someone misheard Nita and leader and gave us Lita.
