|First Cheeky Weekly appearance|
A pig substituted for an injured Goalie Cat in the 13 May 1978 issue (I presume the writer couldn't think of a cat joke that week).
Six-Gun Sam's gunslinging skills (or lack thereof) across the whole week. Sam told Cheeky "The Goalie Cat is gonna throw a can in the air for me every day until I hit it!" (presumably he meant the can, not the cat). By Saturday, Sam was so frustrated at being unable to hit the target that he tossed his gun over his shoulder, fetching Goalie Cat a nasty blow on his furry noggin.
Just over a month later, the 22 July 1978 issue saw Goalie Cat featured throughout the week again, as Cheeky vowed to get a can past the moggy if it took him all week. After a week (except Thursday) of cat jokes and failed shots, Goalie Cat and the local moggies ganged up on the toothy funster, booting a selection of tin cans and discarded footwear in Cheeky's direction.
It seems that by the 25 November 1978 issue, the Cheeky Weekly Inconsistent Hair Colour Syndrome had leapt the species boundary from human to feline, as Goalie Cat was missing his stripes.
