The Birds, The Bees and Family Trees

Forgive me for going a tad off-topic here, but reading through Whoopee and Wow! dated 24 November 1984 I was surprised by this episode of Family Trees. The somewhat disturbing story of a pregnant birch tree being delivered of offspring overnight would surely confuse any young readers who were at that point being taught about plant reproduction.

Little did we know prior to this strip that arboreal ardour was rife among the protagonists. Since none of the male cast had the decency to admit responsibility, the identity of the lustful leaf-bearer who fathered the new arrivals remains open to speculation.

Art: Robert Nixon

    1. Yes, I'm re-reading all the post-Cheeky-merge issues of Whoopee! at the moment so I'll see whether there are any more interesting Family Tree stories as time goes on. You could well be right about the father (I think that tree is Scots Pine) - maybe dew is the tree equivalent of child support.

    1. Robert Nixon did a typically great job on the artwork. A pity they didn't do an Elephant On The Run/Family Trees crossover, but maybe that would have been just TOO daft!
