The Rejects - April Apron

In this series of Rejects posts I'm examining the named characters who appeared in Cheeky's strips in Krazy but failed to make a transition into Cheeky Weekly. Attention turns this time to the rather curiously-surnamed April Apron.

April turned up in the 1977 April Fool edition of Krazy (cover date 02 April 1977).

It's not surprising that April never migrated to Cheeky Weekly since she was very much a single-gag creation. Even the Cook/McDiarmid team behind the Krazy strip above had to admit to the somewhat strained nature of the joke associated with the character.
