Cheeky's First Christmas - part 3

This concluding part of my short series examining Cheeky's festive doings in the Christmas 1976 edition of Krazy brings us to Cheeky's third strip appearance in that issue. The Krazy Gang, who numbered Cheeky among their assorted human, avian and alien members, had appeared in Krazy from the first issue. When Krazy folded in April 1978, the Gang were among the survivors to be absorbed into Whizzer and Chips, where their adventures (still including our toothy hero) continued until February 1986.

However, all this upheaval lay in the future as readers of that first festive Krazy anticipated a seasonal escapade with Cheeky and his Gang colleagues...

It's always good to see Cheeky without his usual amused grin and I like the expressions of sheepishness on display in this strip. This is Pongo Snodgrass' second encounter with the Gang in this issue, and both feature similar final panels. Not quite the seasonal rapprochement one might have expected.

Don't eat too many chocolates, and have a merry Christmas, Pals!
