Cheeky on a Shoestring

The Chit-Chat page in Cheeky Weekly dated 12 January 1980 included a letter from reader Douglas Bell telling our toothy hero that he had spotted a copy of his favourite comic in an episode of BBC TV detective series Shoestring broadcast on 04 November 1979.


Cheeky hadn't seen the programme in question, but here are the scenes Douglas referred to...




Apologies to actress Fiona Scott for inverting this image
to afford a better view of the back page.

The issue featured in the episode is Cheeky Weekly dated 28 April 1979...


The full Shoestring episode, Nine Tenths Of The Law, is currently on YouTube. The Cheeky Weekly sequences begin at 07:05 and 11:08. UPDATE - this link no longer works as the episode has been removed.
