Naturally, given this is a humour comic from The50s, ValuesDissonance abounds for the modern reader.

* BrainyBrunette: Denise one of the heroines of ''Broadway Babes'', though her smarts were ''much'' more of the ZanyScheme variety and because of the lack of brains elsewhere.

''Dizzy Dames'' ({{Tagline}}: 'Screwballs in Skirts') was an early 1950s humour anthology comic published by ACG. As the title suggests the stories were all female dominated, though the actual dizziness of the dames in question varied by character. The line up included:

* ''Broadway Babes'': Denise and Dotty, two ambitious but not overly talented chourus girls and their repeated attempts to break into the world of show business.
* ''Moronica'': The adventures of a gorgeous but empty headed young woman trying to get a steady job.
* ''Man-Huntin' Minnie of Delta Pu'': A college based AbhorrentAdmirer out for romance.
