In 1946 Magazine Enterprises moved into children's comics, with the release of two titles Tick Tock Tales and The Pixies.
The main character in the Pixies was Pete Pixie, who lived in a town called Pixerary. Other members of the cast were his girlfriend named Polly Pixie and three nephews called Tom, Dick and Harry.
Pete was no ordinary pixie as he possessed superpowers. When danger lurked Pete slipped away and called out 'Pick a peck o' pixies!', at which he magically became The Mighty Atom.
With issue #6, published in 1949, the title was changed to Mighty Atom and the Pixies, but after this no more were published. The Pixies did still appear in Tick Tock Tales, until 1951.
