Cheeky Weekly Star Guests in Whizzer and Chips

As IPC's Star Guest run for 1979 entered its third week, the alternating nature of the placement of strips meant it was the turn of Whizzer and Chips to host a feature from Cheeky Weekly. On this occasion it was the dauntless Skateboard Squad who were chosen to represent the toothy funster's comic. The story (not a reprint from Cheeky Weekly) in which our heroes deputised for an out-of-commission stunt biker gave an opportunity for the Squad to demonstrate their prowess on skateboards to those Whizzer and Chips readers unfamiliar with the feature.

Whizzer and Chips 14 April 1979
Drawn by the strip's regular artist, Mike Lacey

This was the only Skateboard Squad episode in which our pooch pal Wipe-Out was seen to converse with his companions (although he appeared to speak in the 18 November 1978 issue of Cheeky Weekly).

In the same week that the above page appeared in Whizzer and Chips, The Skateboard Squad were absent from Cheeky Weekly which, in its own run of Star Guests, was hosting Whoopee's Sweeny Toddler.

Cheeky Weekly's final Skateboard Squad episode would appear just 4 weeks after their Whizzer and Chips Star Guest outing. However, the intrepid trio returned to the pages of the toothy funster's comic after a 2 week break, in their new guise as the Speed Squad.
