Scooter was DC's attempt to cash in on the teen humor success of Archie, and Beatlemania. He was a British lad with a Vespa (hence Scooter), imported to America. Like Archie he had two gorgeous girlfriends fighting over him, a blonde (Cookie) and a brunette (Penny). He was supposed to have a nemesis named Malibu, but by this issue it looks like they were friends.

BTW, this is an unfortunate title for a story:

GCD says that the stories in Scooter #1 were supposed to appear in a Showcase issue, and it was even advertised as such, but DC decided to go ahead and give Scooter his own title on the basis of the Beatles phenomenon.
