Profile - Don the Dustman

Don the Dustman made a single appearance in Cheeky Weekly's run.  On Christmas morning in the 31 December 1977 issue he gave Cheeky the feed line for a gag while helping himself to one of the toothy funster's chocs.  Possibly the script writer felt that already-established refuse disposal character Short-Sighted Dustman, who by this time had appeared in 3 issues, was not really appropriate for this joke since there was no nearsighted aspect to it.

  2. Of course they're real! Don has now retired, and has fond memories of his appearance in Cheeky Weekly, although he thinks he would have done a better job in the comic than Sid the Street-Sweeper.
