The One-Offs - Little Stitch

Over the weeks there were many anonymous stooges who shared a joke with Cheeky and were never seen again. Certain of these ephemeral members of the Cheeky cast, however, were introduced in such a way that one expected them to become regular characters. This series of posts examines those 'one-off' appearances.

Ah Sew's younger brother Little Stitch made his one and only Cheeky Weekly appearance in the issue dated 01 December 1979. This one-off character's name was punningly based on that of the diminutive but large-booted music hall performer Little Tich (1867-1928). The joke assigned to Little Stitch could quite easily have been delivered by his older sibling, but the Cheeky's Week scriptwiter evidently felt that it was worth creating a new character just to wring out an extra gag from his name (though whether kids of the late 70's would have been aware of the music hall allusion is open to question).
