Profile - Posh Claude

Claude felt he was a cut above the riff-raff that populated Cheeky's Week. Strutting around Krazy Town in his school cap and blazer, Claude would be accused by Cheeky of having a lifestyle that was one of moneyed extravagance.  The truth would then be revealed, often in comments made by Claude's mum, and Claude would suffer embarrassment as a result.




Claude's mummikins was indeed posh and had a Rolls Royce and fur coats, but his daddikins was shown to be a street vendor of hot dogs.  However, we see a different father driving the Rolls Royce.  Very strange.

Claude first appeared in Cheeky Weekly issue 3, dated 05 November 1977, and featured in 106 issues.

The scriptwriter wasn't averse to recycling posh jokes, either.

  1. The earlier Posh Claude appearances certainly suggested he had an affluent background - with the trappings of such visually depicted on several occasions (the Rolls, etc).

    Later however (mainly after Cheeky Weekly had been sucked into Whoopee) the joke changed to reveal that this was all affectation on Claude's part. His family were actually shouty working class caricatures with a big scabby flea-ridden mongrel.

    My favourite Cheeky joke about Posh Claude: "They're so posh in their house, all their cups have handles..."
