Krypto #40: Bizarro Krypto's Big Adventure

From: Adventure Comics #294 and Superboy #95 (March 1962)

A Bizarro World story (I can hear you groan from here) about Halloween opposite-pranks soon turns into a Bizarro Krypto story when the Mutt of Steel is forced to eat warm hot dogs under threat of being exposed to blue kryptonite, hardy-har.
B-Krypto, treated cruelly by his master, Bizarro #1, leaves to find a new master. His reasoning will be important later; there'll be a test. He adopts Bizarro-Lana as his mistress instead.
But this too is as a bad fit. He doesn't appreciate getting the juicy steaks while she eats all the table scraps. Hum.
So off he goes again, to find a new master: Bizarro-Kltpzyxm, who creates some monstrous playmates for his new dog. But Bizarro-Krypto plays a little rough.
So Kleptozym or whatever summons the original Krypto to Bizarro World to play with B-dog. Sadly, they get along like cats and well, dogs.
The fight ends when the pooches stumble upon the blue kryptonite chunk we saw BizKryp get teased with.
Krypto does have a heart, and he kicks the rock off-world before leaving himself, hopefully never to return. Humiliated, Bizarro-Krypto leaves his master and finds another: Bizarro-Luthor, the nicest man on Square Earth.
But there are limits to the amount of opposite "villainy" a Bizarro can endure. Luthor's newest scheme would involve making Bizarro World unopposite and the Dog of Crystal can't abide that.
Solution: Prevent the robots from rounding up Bizarro World by herding them into a new position.
Screw this noise. Time to go back to his original master where...
...he is overjoyed to be severely mistreated, because it means Bizarro #1 loves him. Aw. But wait. Were you paying attention? If not, I understand. It's just a load of nonsense. If so, you may have noted that Krypto left his master because he was being mean to him, but on Bizarro World, mean is nice and nice is means, so... Oh screw it.

Meanwhile, in an imaginary story where the El family all escaped from Krypton and moved to Smallville (Superboy #95), the super-pup is a part of that family.
Should PETA be called in there too? You make the call.

I think the Curt Swan caricature of Jack Kennedy on the cover of Adventure 294 looks a lot more like the President's younger brother Teddy. It amazes me that you're still doing this, even though you often get no one to comment on your effort; I admire your tenacity. Have you decided what (presumably) Silver Age character you'll feature on Saturdays once we hit 2017?

I'm trying to complete the Krypto stuff, and there are enough to keep 2017 rich in super dog stories.
