Whizzer and Chips - The Cheeky Raids part 7

New readers start here... After Cheeky Weekly folded and was incorporated into Whoopee as of February 1980 six strips that had originated in the toothy funster's title survived the merge and continued to appear in the amalgamated comic. Whoopee itself foundered in March 1985 and was merged into Whizzer and Chips. Three of the surviving Cheeky Weekly strips successfully negotiated this second merge and went on to appear in the newly combined publication, rather inelegantly titled 'Whizzer and Chips now including Whoopee'. The survivors were Mustapha Million, Calculator Kid and (appearing only twice) Stage School. Cheeky continued to appear, but as a member of The Krazy Gang, who had moved into W&C when Krazy, the comic in which the Gang originated, expired in April 1978.

Whizzer and Chips had a long tradition of sending characters from the Chips section into Whizzer and vice versa. These cross-comic forays were known as 'raids'. In this series of posts I'm chronicling the raids involving the ex-Cheeky Weekly characters who made the transition into Whizzer and Chips, all of whom were allocated to the Chips section. For the purposes of this series, although this particular manifestation of the toothy funster didn't directly descend from Cheeky Weekly, I'm including Cheeky's Krazy Gang appearances as those of an 'ex-Cheeky Weekly character'.

Following the previous raid involving an ex-Cheeky Weekly character, there was a break of 3 issues before one of our pals from the toothy funster's comic was again entangled in the murky world of cross-comic infiltration. In fact it was Calculator Kid, who had been the victim of the raid documented in the link above, who was once again targeted by the Whizz-Kids. See if you can spot the culprit in this story of Charlie being let out of school by a teacher to wander around town (wouldn't be allowed today), then scroll down for the answer...

... as with the raid covered in the previous post in this series, this was a Bave-on-Bave incursion, the interloper this time being Toy Boy.

Our Cheeky Weekly pals are now falling rather behind, having suffered 5 raids while perpetrating only 3.

Since falling victim to his previous raid, Calculator Kid had reverted to reprints of his Cheeky Weekly adventures. The one used above originated in the special Cheeky Weekly dated 31 March 1979. The original first panel looked like this...
