The Space Cadet, a k a Tom Corbett, is supposed to be in a pressure suit. Those are supposed to be constant-volume (CV) joints at his elbows and knees, so air pressure doesn't leave him splayed out like a starfish. The artist Failed To Grasp The Concept.Bonus points for anyone who can identify the cowboys, EXCEPT the guy on the far left -!
No, it wouldn't be Tom Swift - it's a likely name, and you're in the cultural ballpark, but he was a slightly different chap.
Well, I'm pretty sure the guy leading the chestnut is Tom Mix. The guy on the farthest right is Red Ryder (of A Christmas Story fame).Beyond that, frankly, I'm not entirely sure either!
