Cheeky Weekly Star Guests in Whoopee! (part 6)

Examining week 12 of IPC's 1979 Star Guest series means attention again turns to Whoopee! since that's where the Cheeky Weekly character visits occurred on the promotion's even-numbered weeks. Representing the toothy funster's title in Whoopee! dated 16 June 1979 was none other than our grinning pal himself, making a return after his foray into said comic's pages 2 weeks earlier.

Cheeky's first Whoopee! visit introduced readers to Bump-Bump Bernie, Granny Gumdrop, Yikky-Boo and Six-Gun Sam. In his second promotional excursion into Whoopee!, the toothy funster met a further selection of characters from the Cheeky's Week supporting cast.

Barrie Appleby did his usual excellent work on the strip, but it's a pity that Whoopee! readers weren't able to enjoy the full glory of a Frank McDiarmid Cheeky page. Presumably Frank was unavailable due to his other commitments - despite having drawn only one page in the concurrent edition of our toothy pal's comic, the mighty Mr M had no doubt been busily creating artwork for upcoming issues at the time this Star Guest was requisitioned.

Any readers sufficiently impressed by this page of Cheeky cheeriness to set up a regular order for the toothy funster's title could have enjoyed a run of 34 issues of Cheeky Weekly before it folded and rather ironically its star sought refuge in Whoopee!
