Profile - Jogging Jeremy

Limping along in the wake of the late 70s fitness fad came Jogging Jeremy, exhausting himself in 111 issues of Cheeky Weekly, and often being overtaken by Snail.  Jeremy had not previously appeared in Krazy when he made his Cheeky Weekly debut in the 22 October 1977 issue, although he did subsequently appear twice in Cheeky's companion comic;  In Krazy dated 17 December 1977 he was the featured character in the Cheeky's Pal feature (which interestingly Burpo introduces as a Burpo Special, pre-dating that feature's appearance in Cheeky Weekly by a year), and the substandard sportsman appeared again in Krazy's final issue dated 15 April 1978.

Jeremy was seen straining himself to pass Snail on the Pin-Up Pal Poster in Cheeky Weekly dated 25 February 1978.  Two weeks later, the feeble fitness fanatic was featured throughout Cheeky's Week, when he set out to break the world record for circuits of Krazy Town in the 11 March 1978 issue.

Jeremy was the subject of The Burpo Special in Cheeky Weekly dated 28 April 1979.

On Saturday in the 20 October 1979 issue, Cheeky visited Jeremy's keep fit class which, given the feeble state of its owner's health, was surprisingly well-patronised by the toothy funster's pals.

The issue dated 05 January 1980 included Cheeky's Cut-Out Catalogue of Jogging Jeremy Jokes, and in the 19 January 1980 issue there was a half-page feature entitled Jogging Jeremy's 'Weak'ly Exercise Routine.  Jeremy appeared in the Skateboard Squad strip in the 24 June 1978 issue and guested in the same feature in the comic dated 07 October 1978.
Jeremy made it onto the cover of 7 issues, 5 times in a Cheeky's Week strip, once on 05 January 1980's Leap Year cover, and once as the object of Cheeky and Manhole Man's joke.
