The One-Offs - Station Porter

Cheeky had plenty of adult pals who were regularly seen performing their jobs around Krazy Town; Postie, Doctor Braincell, Constable Chuckle, Milkie etc.

The station porter on the cover of the 19 November 1977 issue probably thought he was lined up to join these Cheeky Weekly stalwarts, particularly as jokes at the expense of British Rail were regularly featured in the media at the time.  Although Cheeky usually encountered his fun-pals on the street, and shoehorning in a railway joke in while Cheeky did his weekly round of Krazy Town could have been problematic, there seems no reason why a railway theme couldn't have occasionally been used again in the What A Cheek cover strips.

Sadly for Station Porter, no further trackside fun was featured in the comic.

  1. Maybe all the one-offs should meet up and try and start a new comic...:)
