Jupiter's parents professional ballroom dancers died in a car crash when he was four years old. Jupiter's past acting ability benefits him frequently in mysteries because he can act older than he is, perform imitations of people when necessary and act less intelligent to extract information from potential suspects.

Jupiter is a prolific reader and inventor and frequently invents a device that simplifies solving a mystery. Jupiter has a knack for usually thinking about clues correctly to solve an otherwise unsolvable mystery.

He also likes to play pranks on the other two investigators. Because of his intellectual side, Jupe is adept at using big words and frequently uses them to his advantage, particularly to seem older, annoy Pete, and startle adults.


Jupe hates to dismiss an unsolved mystery, which frequently means that he drags Bob and Pete along for the ride. Pete loves and cares for animals, and is fond of uttering the exclamation "Gleeps! His father works as a film technician for special effects in Hollywood Pete is a frequent companion of Jupiter on stake-outs and other field trips, particularly in the earlier mysteries, when Bob is unavailable.

While he may not have the intellectual ability of Jupiter, Pete is nonetheless considered as an equal in the stories and is able to point out Jupiter's own shortcomings usually in a comical fashion. He is also capable of making deductions and sometimes serves as the clue-bearer instead of Bob. He has an excellent sense of direction, as in The Mystery of the Stuttering Parrot. Depending on the case, Bob's father is a sportswriter , business journalist , or political journalist , and occasionally helps The Three Investigators in some of their cases.

Early in the series, Bob is hampered physically by a leg brace he wore, due to multiple fractures inflicted when he rolled down a hill. This handicap relegated him to a more studious and less physical involvement. Bob works part-time in the local library , suiting his role as data collector.

Arthur sold the international exploitation rights to the publishing house Random House. However, the copyright remained with him. The contract included the rights to publish books, films, comics and mechanical sound reproduction.

The Franckh-Kosmos publisher of Random House acquired the German-speaking exploitation rights in After Robert Arthur's death in , the copyrights were given to the University of Michigan. In his testimony , Arthur declared that "all rights, legal titles and stakes, [he] owned by the time of [his] death, concerning all published books, short stories, plays or unpublished manuscripts, including all issued copyright claims, just as all rights for license fees and subsidiary rights, as it is specified in his contracts with publishers" were to be given to the University of Michigan.

This is said to mainly be for fiscal reasons because legacies given to education establishments avoid inheritance taxes. Since then Random House has been paying royalties to the university, however, stopped doing so as of , because it was not clear whether the University of Michigan still had a legal entitlement. I moved my extremely expensive collection of Asian literature to airtight plastic containers and I wish I had done the same for the Hitchcock books.

As a side note, the termites had started on my Spider-Man collection , but It looks like the polybags and cardboard backing for my Spider-Man titles saved them from being a meal for those destructive creatures. Today, my Spidey books are now safely in impenetrable plastic too. At least two books that were destroyed were written by one of the worst Spectacular Spider-Man writers of all time, J.

Alfred Hitchcock and The Three Investigators Series

Aren't covers created once the text is finished and ready to be printed? Well, generally the answer is "Yes," however a curious fan by the name of Daniel Storm commissioned artist Robert Adragna—the final artist for the series—to see what he might have come up with given only the title.

And, because no fgood series should go unfinished, the author, Hector Sebastian the boys' mentor after the death of Alfred Hitchcock assisted them in getting their notes into a publishable order. This had to happen because the original author, Mary V. Carey, dies in after having her original manuscript rejected and the series ended.

Hector Sebastian can't allow a good story to go unwritten and so this year he worked with the three boys to put the story of The Mystery of The Ghost Train together.
