|Mr Chips' debut|
Art: Dick Millington and...?
His second appearance was drawn by Frank McDiarmid, including a rendition that's notably similar to the one above. I suspect that at the time Dick drew the panel above, he hadn't seen Frank's version of the character and that someone other than Dick added Mr Chips to the panel at a later date (you may recall I have a similar suspicion about Dick's handling of Ah Sew).

Chips junior (first name Woody?) made a single appearance, in the comic dated 22 September 1979.

Despite his resolution to cease the jokes in the new year edition dated 05 January 1980, Cheeky's sawdust-strewn stooge made two further Cheeky Weekly appearances, the final one in the penultimate issue.

The jovial joiner was given the honour of having a Cheeky's Cut-Out Comedy Catalogue in his name, devoted to carpentry-related humour, included in the same last-but-one issue. Chips appeared in 21 issues of the toothy funster's title.
Mr Chips was created for Cheeky Weekly and never appeared in Cheeky's strips in Krazy.
