Johnny Cougar was a strip in the Tiger comic. Its eponymous hero was a somewhat stereotypical Native American, a member of the Seminole tribe, who made his living as a professional wrestler, while skipping prepositions and articles in the best Tonto tradition. Over time, his matches became more and more outlandish and improbable, including one memorable occasion on which an unscrupulous demolition expert bet him that he wouldn't fight in a ring suspended between four factory chimneys! His frequent companion was swimmer Splash Gorton.
