Cheeky's First Christmas - part 2

In the second part of this short series examining Cheeky's contributions to the Christmas 1976 edition of Krazy, we skip ahead to page 19, the site of 2 reader participation features. Our grinning pal joins his Krazy Gang chums to deliver a selection of readers' gags in the Krazy News-Pound.

Over the page Cheeky is in the spotlight as his own 4-page  'Ello, It's Cheeky strip commences. We know from Cheeky Weekly dated 19 January 1980 that Frank McDiarmid enjoys drawing snow, and the toothy funster's festive stroll around Krazy Town allows Frank to indulge himself in plenty of wintry scenes.

The bottom left panel contains the
payoff to the gag set up at the bottom
right of the News-Pound page shown above.


This page features the un-named
occasional character I refer to as Brother Girl


We'll leave Cheeky heading home to enjoy some more Christmas pressies, but join me again in a few days as I examine more Cheekiness from Christmas '76.
