Whizzer and Chips - The Cheeky Raids part 51

New readers start here... After Cheeky Weekly folded and was incorporated into Whoopee as of February 1980 six strips that had originated in the toothy funster's title survived the merge and continued to appear in the amalgamated comic. Whoopee itself foundered in March 1985 and was merged into Whizzer and Chips. Three of the surviving Cheeky Weekly strips successfully negotiated this second merge and went on to appear in the newly combined publication, rather inelegantly titled 'Whizzer and Chips now including Whoopee'. The survivors were Mustapha Million, Calculator Kid and (appearing only twice) Stage School. Cheeky continued to appear, but as a member of The Krazy Gang, who had moved into W&C when Krazy, the comic in which the Gang originated, expired in April 1978. However, the Krazy Gang's Whizzer and Chips run ended in the issue dated 08 February 1986. Calculator Kid survived a little longer, his run of reprints coming to an end in the 26 July 1986 edition and leaving Mustapha Million as the sole Cheeky Weekly survivor.

The first raid to involve Mustapha Million following the resumption of raids in Whizzer and Chips dated 12 August 1989 occurred in the 02 September 1989 edition. Unlike the earlier run of weekly reciprocal raids, this new raid regime initially saw just one incursion each issue (a weekly Whizz-kid infiltration of  Chips alternating with a Chip-ite invasion of Whizzer).

Can you locate the Whizz-kid intruder? The rotten raider's identity will be revealed below...

The significance of the
car registration eludes me










For the fourth time Mustapha is subject to a raid by Whizzer's pesky prankster, Joker.

Mustapha's strips had been made more contemporary since Frank McDiarmid took over the artwork duties. Mustapha's pals at this stage were modern, inner-city types wearing INXS jackets, replacing the school uniform or jumper and shorts-clad kids who were his chums back in Cheeky Weekly's heyday.

The graffiti reading 'Frank Bruno will fump Tyson' was a joke in a similar vein to the 'Your country needs you' poster, indicating that the dilapidated railway station was somewhat behind the times - Bruno had fought Tyson and lost, despite a courageous performance, in February 1989.

More raiding fun soon!

The Whoopee Years - Snail

Readers of Krazy first saw Cheeky’s slithering sidekick in issue number 6 of that comic, dated 20 November 1976. Snail appeared only intermittently at first, but after a few weeks the toothy funster was rarely seen without his shell-bearing companion (except for Cheeky’s appearances in the Krazy Gang strips where Snail was never on view, probably because he was wary of being eaten by the gang parrot, Blue).

Snail followed when Cheeky secured his own comic, eventually graduating to his own, one page a week feature, and when Cheeky Weekly folded the toothy funster's constant companion faithfully accompanied him into the pages of Whoopee!

The mirthful mollusc featured on the cover of the first combined Whoopee! and Cheeky, and continued to appear in our grinning pal’s strips for the duration of his Whoopee! (and Whoopee) career. However Snail also had his own features following the merge. The first of these was a weekly untitled single row of panels (two panels per gag except for the 03 May 1980 issue where the joke was delivered across 3 panels) which appeared below What a Cheek on the Cheeky Section front cover. This series began in the third combined issue of Whoopee! and Cheeky, and subsequently appeared every week (with the exception of 15 March 1980 when the Cheeky Section cover heralded the toothy funster’s new, movie-based series) until the Cheeky Section concept was dropped after the issue dated 04 October 1980.

The first untitled strip featuring Snail - 23 February 1980. Art: Frank McDiarmid

I had previously assigned the artwork credits for all these untitled Snail strips to Frank McDiarmid, but looking at them again, it seems to me that Frank only drew them up to and including the 22 March 1980 issue. I think subsequent strips may have been drawn by the person who rendered the ET Challenge results page, and various 'place a regular order' ads, who was presumably a staff artist.

29 March 1980 - not Frank?

The untitled Snail strips harked back to Snail of the Century in Cheeky Weekly; both featured wildlife witticisms as the gastropod gagster swapped jokes with various garden creatures (although unlike in SotC, Cheeky never appeared in the untitled Snail strip). I felt Snail wasn't really a strong enough character to front his former whole page strip in the toothy funster's comic, and that he was much better suited to the single-row-of-panels format. The first 21 untitled strips were printed in colour, but the remaining 6 episodes were printed in red ink (possibly the lack of a title had confused some readers and it may be that the crimson printing was introduced to clarify the boundary between the colour What a Cheek and Snail's gags).

The final issue to include a Cheeky Section was that dated 04 October 1980, and Snail's untitled vehicle ended in the same edition. A week later Cheeky's pages were revamped and the inimitable invertebrate's appearances were for almost a year confined to the initial run of the Cheeky feature. However, as of a further remodelling of Cheeky's contributions in the 12 September 1981 edition, the toothy funster's slimy stooge was once again allocated his own feature, this time entitled Cheeky's Snail (rather prosaic, but at least it was a title). Snail's new strip was located in the centre pages, sharing that prime location with a variety of other Cheeky-related offerings. Once again fauna funnies were to the fore as gags were traded with various scuttling, crawling and flying garden residents.

Art: Frank McDiarmid

All 17 Cheeky's Snail strips were drawn by Frank McDiarmid, and printed in black and white with red spot colour. Following the strip's final appearance in Whoopee! dated 02 January 1982, Snail was once again restricted to appearances alongside Cheeky in the toothy funster's features. Our grinning chum's inseparable sidekick accompanied him in his last Whoopee appearance in the final issue dated 30 March 1985. A week later Whoopee was merged into Whizzer and Chips, but Cheeky's solo strips didn't transfer into the newly combined comic. However our toothy pal had been appearing in Whizzer and Chips as a member of the Krazy Gang since Krazy had folded in 1978, and continued to appear in that role after the Whoopee merge, but I don't recall ever seeing Snail in the Krazy Gang's Whizzer and Chips run.

Blimey! It's a Christmas Cheeky

Over on his (sadly approaching its end) blog, Lew Stringer is examining the 1979 festive issue of Cheeky Weekly.

UPDATE - I should have mentioned that Lew's other blog will be continuing.

Krazy Kristmas Kountdown part 2

In the first part of our quick flick through the pages of Krazy dated 18 December 1976 in search of Cheeky's contributions, we didn't encounter any festive material. However, delving deeper into the comic the impending celebrations become more apparent, as on page 19 the forthcoming Krazy Christmas Number is given a plug ('number' being a rather archaic, even for the 1970s, comics way of referring to what today we would call an 'issue').


There is no Krazy Gang strip in this number issue, the gang probably having been bumped due to the presence of part 3 of the Krazy 1977 Diary. However fans of Cheeky's comic colleagues needn't be too upset as they do appear in the toothy funster's story this week (one of the aspects of Krazy that made it such a great comic was the regular crossing of characters from one feature to another - Cheeky had already done so in this issue as we saw in the previous post). Things start to get really Christmassy as the toothy funster is ejected onto the snowy streets of Krazy Town, and there's further crossing-over of characters as Cheeky meets Stumbly Fumbly, son of Detective Fumbly, whose Casebook was the subject of a weekly text feature in Krazy. Accident-prone Stumbly was a variation on Bump-Bump Bernie, who by this time had appeared once, in Krazy dated 31 October 1976.

Frank renders a rather muscular Sporty

The Gang, including Cheeky who is wearing the same rather fetching red and white sweater he modelled on the cover, are also featured in the Krazy News Pound reader participation feature. Printing the gags in coloured ink is possibly not the best choice for legibility.


That concludes Cheeky's contributions to this issue. Hap-pee Christmas pals!

Krazy Kristmas Kountdown part 1

This time last year I examined Cheeky's contributions to Krazy's first Christmas edition, appropriately dated 25 December 1976. This time I'm looking back a week earlier to see what our toothy pal was up to as the inhabitants of Krazy Town geared up for the impending festivities.

Art: Mike Lacey
Cheeky gets to appear on the cover, sporting a snazzy red and white jumper instead of his usual red and black ensemble, tasked with publicising the Custard Pie Corner reader participation feature. Swiftly turning the pages in order to avoid being splatted by the incoming sloppy confection, we find the grinning gagster making an uncharacteristically joke-free guest appearance in the 12½ p Buytonic Boy adventure. As the story starts, the titular Steve Ford is happily collecting Christmas trees for the members of the Krazy Gang, yet soon the energy-boosting effect of the tonic he purchased in the first episode of this series (as depicted in the title panel for the benefit of latecomers to the strip who may be puzzling over the 'buytonic' reference) seems to be wearing off...

Art: Robert Nixon


Although he appears to have made a full recovery, the reason for Steve's sudden lassitude is not addressed.

In the aforementioned Custard Pie Corner, there are a couple of political pastings as Home Secretary Merlyn Rees and former Prime Minister Harold Wilson both cop a custardy facefull, along with kangaroo impersonator (apparently) and crooner Max Bygraves.



I'll be further delving into Cheeky's 1976 pre-Christmas capers soon.

Whizzer and Chips - The Cheeky Raids part 50

New readers start here... After Cheeky Weekly folded and was incorporated into Whoopee as of February 1980 six strips that had originated in the toothy funster's title survived the merge and continued to appear in the amalgamated comic. Whoopee itself foundered in March 1985 and was merged into Whizzer and Chips. Three of the surviving Cheeky Weekly strips successfully negotiated this second merge and went on to appear in the newly combined publication, rather inelegantly titled 'Whizzer and Chips now including Whoopee'. The survivors were Mustapha Million, Calculator Kid and (appearing only twice) Stage School. Cheeky continued to appear, but as a member of The Krazy Gang, who had moved into W&C when Krazy, the comic in which the Gang originated, expired in April 1978. However, the Krazy Gang's Whizzer and Chips run ended in the issue dated 08 February 1986. Calculator Kid survived a little longer, his run of reprints coming to an end in the 26 July 1986 edition and leaving Mustapha Million as the sole Cheeky Weekly survivor.

began inside. Terry also gives us his

and Sweeny Toddler with
canine companion Hairy Henry



The Whizzer and Chips moratorium on new raids, imposed at the end of July 1988, was lifted in the issue dated 12 August 1989 (a week after our toothy pal had been the infiltrator in a reprinted raid). During the suspension of the raids Sid and Shiner’s individual weekly strips had been abandoned in favour of a centre-pages confrontation of the two faction leaders, entitled Sid vs Shiner, and the Chip-ites and Whizz-kids letters had also been moved into adjacent pages titled Sid’s Whizz-kids vs Shiner’s Chip-ites. 

However the former arrangement was restored in the 12 August 1989 issue, with the Chip-ite and Whizz-kid letter pages dispersed back into their individual titles and Sid and Shiner once again allocated their own strips.

Mustapha Million continued to appear, almost 12 years after his Cheeky Weekly debut, drawn at this time by Frank McDiarmid, who had also begun illustrating a new strip, Cosmic Cafe, as from the edition dated 13 May 1989.

Maybe the raids were reinstated in response to reader requests. The announcement of the first raid of the new run differed from those documented earlier in this series of posts, in that there was only one raid perpetrated (in the raids I've covered previously a Whizz-kid character raided a Chip-ite, and vice versa, in each issue), and additionally the raid was announced in the comic in which the raid was undertaken (previously the raiders were revealed a week later), although the identity of the interloper and victim were not revealed. Readers were aware that a raid was in progress due to Sid's disgruntled announcement...


The raider was stetson-sporting JR, who had slyly slipped into the Bumpkin Billionaires story. Since neither are Cheeky-related I won't be featuring that here, but I thought I'd include Frank McDiarmid's Cosmic Cafe from the same issue. Set in a galactic greasy spoon caff, this strip was a lot of fun and allowed Frank's imagination to run wild with the various alien customer designs. I like the depiction of the black hole, and it's always good to see a 'Boilk!' (the traditional comics way of indicating digestive distress). Robotic chef MNX (oh yes), who gets referred to incorrectly as MINX in his first namecheck this issue, seems on this occasion to be a hi-tech version of Auntie Daisy.

The Whoopee Years - Cheeky - Roundup

Having completed my series of posts documenting Cheeky's Whoopee (with and without exclamation) career, I thought I'd do another post summarising the various Cheeky vehicles of that period.

Cheeky comic, What a Cheek, It's Cheeky, Cheeky Film Productions, Cheeky Movie Masterpiece and Cheeky's Easter

Commencing with the first merged issue of Whoopee! and Cheeky and for the following 29 issues, all the Cheeky Weekly survivors were confined to a Cheeky comic occupying the central 16 pages in each edition. During this run our toothy pal featured in a strip entitled What a Cheek, which appeared 28 times during the existence of the comic-within-a-comic. What a Cheek was something of an aperitif, since the grinning lad with more than his share of teeth would each week occupy several more pages within the Cheeky section, initially under the title It's Cheeky. Having appeared for 5 weeks (its brief run probably intended to introduce Cheeky and pals to Whoopee! readers), the 4-pages-a-week-except-for-one-3-pager It's Cheeky was replaced by the toothy funster's next vehicle, the 3-page Cheeky Film Productions. This was the first of a series of film spoofs, although the series was retitled the next week, becoming Cheeky's Movie Masterpiece, each of which spanned 4 pages. However, the 12 April 1980 edition carried a 4-page feature entitled Cheeky's Easter in place of the film spoof.

The final Cheeky comic appeared in the issue dated 04 October 1980.

Cheeky (initial run)

Following the abandonment of the Cheeky comic and the dropping of both What a Cheek and the Movie Masterpieces, the grinning gagster launched into a new, eponymous series. The 4-page-a-week 'Cheeky' strip ran from the issue dated 11 October 1980 to that dated 05 September 1981, so the final 4 'Cheeky' strips of this initial run appeared after the comic's reversion from Whoopee! and Cheeky to Whoopee!

During the above run Cheeky also appeared in a selection of cut-out Valentine Cards, his own Special Crossword and made a foray into Sweeny Toddler

Cheeky’s Week, Cheeky’s Pal and Tee-Hee TV News

The 12 September 1981 Whoopee! saw our toothy pal's weekly allocation of pages halved from 4 to 2. His new centre-spread consisted of the 3 strips named in the above heading, and additionally but less directly linked to the jerseyed japester, an untitled gag section and a strip starring his slithering sidekick entitled, rather unimaginatively, Cheeky's Snail - neither of these strips included our grinning chum, and he featured in only 6 episodes of Cheeky's Pal. This arrangement of strips across the centre pages lasted until the issue dated 02 January 1982, after which Cheeky's Week (a title which had previously been used in Cheeky Weekly) continued on its own for 3 issues, coming to an end in Whoopee! dated 23 January 1982.

During the above run Cheeky (or at least his grinning fizzog) appeared in the second instalment of Terry Bave's How to Draw Comic Strips Book Two in the 10 October 1981 edition.

Cheeky Diary 1982

The 4-part, cut-out 1982 Cheeky Diary began in the 09 January 1982 edition and came to an end in that dated 23 January 1982 (the same edition in which the final Cheeky's Week appeared).

It's Cheeky (second run)

The title It's Cheeky, which was used in the first merged issue of Whoopee! and Cheeky and for the subsequent 4 editions, was revived in the 30 January 1982 comic. However, unlike its previous, 4-page-a-week run, this series of It's Cheeky was reduced to one page per week. The second It's Cheeky run spanned 16 issues, coming to an end in Whoopee! dated 15 May 1982.

Cheeky (second run)

Cheeky's strip was again renamed as of the 22 May 1982 edition, once again reverting to a title used earlier in the toothy funster's sojourn in the pages of Whoopee! The second run of 'Cheeky' consisted of single-page stories (except for 25 December 1982's 'Cheeky's Christmas Crackers' which, rather than the usual story, contained a single illustration depicting the titular tittermeister and pals enjoying a festive slap up feed while exchanging yuletide gags) until Whoopee took on board the survivors from Wow! in the comic dated 02 July 1983. From that issue on Cheeky's strip was reduced to a single row of panels, although the feature retained the 'Cheeky' title. The newly-combined comic continued to style itself Whoopee and Wow! until the issue dated 23 February 1985 following which, as preparations were made for yet another merge (this time it was Whoopee itself that was to be absorbed), the final 5 issues were titled Whoopee. The 'Cheeky' strip appeared in the final Whoopee, dated 30 March 1985, but sadly our toothy pal wasn't among the Whoopee crew selected for transfer to Whizzer and Chips (although he did of course continue to appear there as a member of The Krazy Gang until 08 February 1986).

During the final run of the 'Cheeky' feature, the grinning gagster also fetched up in Quizmaster, E.T.Challenge and TV Quiz Kids.

Having said I wanted to summarise the Cheeky strips of the post-merge-with-Whoopee period, I thought I'd also include a full list of our grinning pal's appearances. Please note the table below includes all the Cheeky's Pal strips, although Cheeky only appeared in those dedicated to Dr Braincell, Baker's Boy, Jogging Jeremy, Ursula, Louise and Constable Chuckle.
