If your town has a crime problem,who you gonna call?
Mr. District Attorney was a long-running radio show. And the character never had a name!! He was just always referred as "Mr. District Attorney," or sometimes Chief. When the show eventually was adapted as an early TV series, they gave him a name, because television ruins everything. So then he became known as Paul Garrett on both radio and TV.
But for our purposes, in Dell Four Color #13 (1942), he was just known as Mr. District Attorney.
Now, you've watched enough Law & Order that you may think you know all about what a district attorney does. Well, let me tell you, you're wrong!
District attorneys go out in the field, and engage in violent fisticuffs with felons!
Not in Midvale City!!
Killing the bad guys, though? Yup, he does that!
And he goes undercover to foil criminals...
Man oh man, we really need more district attorneys like this on TV!! Law & Order: Kicking The Crap Outta Bad Guys Squad?
