The One-Offs - Mad Scientist

Starts today!!

Over the weeks there were many anonymous stooges who shared a joke with Cheeky and were never seen again. Certain of these stooges, however, were introduced in such a way that one expected them to become regular characters.

We have already seen one such; Don the Dustman, who appeared in a single issue only. The fact that, unlike most single-appearance stooges in the comic, he was given a name, led one to expect that he would join the gang of Cheeky Weekly regulars, but this was not to be.

These characters will be the subject of this new series of posts.

This time we focus on Mad Scientist, who in fact was a recurring character in the 'Ello it's Cheeky strip in Krazy, where he had featured in 9 issues by the time of his Cheeky Weekly appearance during the interval in the 14 January 1978 issue. Even his mum, dad and little brother had appeared in Cheeky Weekly's companion title. Yet for some reason he was never featured in Cheeky Weekly again.

  1. The mad scientist must be gutted..he must of thought his job would continue after Krazy..I'd blame the writers!!
    Oh well he went on to create Metal Mickey..boggie boggie..
    though lost the rights to Mickey from the Monkees..
    the mad scientist had loads of half baked chances..at least he'll get a small fee for this one appearance by you..
    don't comic characters get a repeat fee?

  2. He probably asked for too much money, so the editor dropped him from the comic!
