Department of Bushmiller Mysteries

So can anyone explain to me why this vintage boxed set of (rather creepy) Nancy and Sluggo dolls–currently up for auction at Hake’s–calls them “Sluggo and Girl Friend?” Why would Nancy not want to be named? Was Sluggo pleased or confused by getting top billing? It’s as if there were Thimble Theater dolls labeled as “Olive Oyl and her Sailor Companion…”
