A number of the supporting cast who populated Cheeky's Week in his own comic originated in the Cheeky pages in Krazy. However not all the characters who appeared more than once in the toothy funster's Krazy strip made the transition into Cheeky Weekly.
One such was Greg's Gran, who first appeared in the 'Ello It's Cheeky strip in Krazy number 16, dated 29 January 1977.

Apologies to artist Frank McDiarmid for my rather crude
assemblage of panels, which originally spanned 2 pages
Two weeks later Greg and the toothy funster suffered a second drive-by soaking as Gran directed her new car through another kerbside puddle.
Greg's Gran's final Krazy appearance, less than a month after her debut, was in the 19 February 1977 issue where her back-story occupied a full 'Ello It's Cheeky page, plus two panels overleaf.

Possibly Cheeky scriptwriter 'Willie' Cook (apparently a semi-pseudonym according to Frank McDiarmid's interview in Crikey! magazine) considered there was little scope for development of this idea (what would her next mode of transport be - a space ship?), or it was felt that Cheeky Weekly was already replete with Grans (6 Million Dollar and Gumdrop).
