Leave It to Binky is a comic book series published by DC Comics which ran for 82 issues.

The adventures of Binky Biggs started in February-March 1948 and ran for 60 issues coming to an end in 1958.[1] The series was revived in June-July 1968 and continued the numbering of the original series.[2] With issue #72 (April-May 1970), the title was shortened to Binky and the series ran until issue #81 (Oct.-Nov. 1971). Issue #82 was published in Summer 1977.[3] Its success inspired the creation of a spin-off title, Binky's Buddies, which began in January-February 1969 and was cancelled with issue #12 (Nov.-Dec. 1970).[4] It was basically a teen-humor series of the Archie Comics mold.

It earned for itself some recognition in the field, including the Shazam Award for Best Inker (Humor Division) in 1970 for Henry Scarpelli for his work on it, Date With Debbi, and other DC comics.
