The Competition

Peter Gray has been posting an interesting series showing which comics were in UK newsagents in a particular week years ago. His latest post focuses on July 1978, and allows us to see which companion and competitor titles were vying with Cheeky Weekly to relieve youngsters of their pocket money. The week in question saw publication of the 38th issue of the toothy funster's comic, and it was the second week of IPC's Mini Comics promotion.

Of course the comics on sale that week prompt the question, 'Who would win in a fight between Ursula and The Incredible Hulk?'

Cheeky Summer Special 1981

It seems that the answer to the question ‘when does summer start?’ is not quite as simple as one might expect. Our weather-watching chums at the Met Office inform us that Meteorological summer always begins on 01 June, while Astronomical summer begins on 20 or 21 of that month (at least for those of us clinging to the surface of the northern half of the globe as it swings on its dizzying annual route around the sun). I’m not sure whether the management of IPC based the titling of their Specials on Meteorological or Astronomical seasonal dates, but Cheeky’s Special published in 1981 was designated to be of the Summer variety, as it appeared in shops in June of that year (the previous year’s Cheeky Special was published in April and was thus titled Holiday Special). By the time the Cheeky Summer Special 1981 was published, Cheeky and a select band of features from his own weekly title, which had expired in early 1980, were appearing in Whoopee! To acknowledge the arrival of the toothy funster and pals, the comic had, as was the tradition with ‘merges’, adopted the name of the subsumed publication to become Whoopee! and Cheeky, but when the ad for the 1981 Cheeky Summer Special appeared in the issue of that combined title bearing the cover date 27 June 1981, the comic was just 5 weeks away from quietly dropping the 'and Cheeky' reference on the cover. The Cheeky Summer Special 1981 was advertised just once in Whoopee! and Cheeky, whereas the Whoopee! Summer Special of the same year appeared in ads in 3 issues.

Our grinning hero’s career in Whoopee! seems to have been a rather troubled one, as the editor appears to have struggled to find a vehicle for the jerseyed japester that would prove popular with readers. By the summer of 1981 the titular tittermeister’s strips in Whoopee! had gone from an initial 5 weeks in the same format as in Cheeky Weekly, to a series of movie spoofs that lasted 23 weeks, which by the time of publication of this Special had been replaced with something of a return to the original format in the form of a strip entitled Cheeky. This is the first Annual or Special to be published since the October 1980 demise of Whoopee! and Cheeky's Cheeky Section.

 


 

Unlike the 3 previous Cheeky Specials, the cover of this year’s doesn’t feature a seasonal seafront scene, but it does include a text gag which the earlier Specials lacked. The creative team behind this Special clearly believe that roller disco is still sufficiently popular to attract readers (although the toothy funster evidently favours bopping to a soundtrack of jokes on his Walkman-type personal cassette player rather than the musical accompaniment chosen by his companions). Mike Lacy is again the cover artist, having provided the visuals for the front of the 2 previous Specials.

 

 

A strip entitled Cheeky’s Guide to Holidays, and with a sub-heading of Sports and Games, begins over the page. Frank McDiarmid is the artist as Cheeky samples a selection of leisure pursuits including golf and cycling during this 4 page set, at the conclusion of which a caption tells us that the grinning gagster will return on page 34 with another holiday guide.


 

Next up is a strip going by the name of My Old Man’s a Junk Man (a reference to Lonnie Donegan’s raucous paean to a refuse-removing pa). This feature has not been seen before in any Cheeky-related title. Thanks to the diligent Irmantas’ comprehensive chronicling of Cor!! contents I was able to identify its source as that title’s 02 June 1973 issue, where it appeared as part of the Cor-medy Choice feature. Cor-medy Choice solicited readers’ votes to decide which of 10 new strip ideas would be adopted as a full series. My Old Man etc was voted into 4th place, and thereby...junked. On the strip’s resurrection for this Special, the caption in the second panel has been altered to give the strip a supposed relevance to Cheeky’s universe, and the caption in the third panel has been altered to replace ‘street’ with ‘avenue’ so that it matches the first. The compiler of this Special will be dipping into the Cor-medy Choice runners-up again in a few pages. The Cheeky Weekly editor had made a selection from the second run of Cor-medy Choice to represent the supporting cartoon feature during the Saturday Morning pictures sequence in the issue dated 16 September 1978.

 

I can't identify this artist

 

Tom Williams illustrates the Disaster Des episode which follows. Tom contributed to Cheeky Weekly on just one occasion - in the Whizzer and Chips mini comic which appeared in the issue dated 01 July 1978. This is the second time Tom has dawn our pariah pal – Tom contributed 2 Des pages to the 1979 Cheeky Summer Special.

 

 

The Stage School kids are on the beach in the summery saga occupying pages 10 and 11. Teacher insists his pupils concentrate on the nature study task he has set them, but they would rather be entertained by the nearby Punch and Judy show. Robert Nixon has been the regular artist on this feature since it made its debut in Cheeky Weekly back in July 1979, and he continues to supply the artwork following its transfer into Whoopee! However Barry Glennard, who draws this particular episode, stood in for Robert on 3 occasions during the strip’s Cheeky Weekly run, and has previously supplied artwork on the feature in the 1980 Cheeky Holiday Special and the 1981 Cheeky Annual.

Carties (Skipper and Skatie) and what looks to be a form of motorised tricycle (Wipe-Out) are the modes of transport favoured by Speed Squad in their summery-but- sodden escapade. They find these vehicular choices suited to the muddy conditions prevailing at the park, and their conveyances prove handy in clearing a path through the sludge in order that the brass band can mount their parade. Jimmy Hansen, the regular artist on the strip in its Cheeky Weekly days, provides the visuals.

 


 

Also visiting the park in his strip, though enjoying better weather, is Tub. Despite the dry conditions, our portly pal gets wet as a result of being pushed into the pond. Poor old Tub, I’ve never liked this feature as it seems to focus on cruelty a lot of the time. This page-and-a-half story is drawn by Nigel Edwards, who has illustrated all the Tub strips published since the character first appeared in Cheeky Weekly dated 30 September 1978, although the feature wasn’t among those selected for transfer into Whoopee! after the demise of the toothy funster’s own title – a wise decision as far as I’m concerned.

Occupying the bottom half of the page carrying the conclusion to Tub’s park predicament is a puzzle entitled Animal Antics. A pasted-in image of Petula hovers above the brain-teaser, which consists of 8 farm animals drawn by Ed McHenry. Each beast is accompanied by an onomatopoeic representation of an animal utterance, but they are all mixed up. The challenge is to pair the correct sounds and critters. This grey-matter-taxing feature may have been sourced from IPC's bulging cabinet of previously-published posers.

Page 16 sees the commencement of internal colour printing and the first strip to benefit from the process (although in my copy the print on this page is rather blurred) is a Cave Kids reprint, featuring what may be an antecedent of Cheeky Weekly’s fugitive tusker, Walter.

 

Mercifully, the colour printing on the next page is much clearer as readers are challenged to guide Cheeky, who is equipped with swimming trunks and a towel, through a maze to the beach, avoiding Ursula, Granny Gumdrop, Louise, Gloomy Glad, Posh Claude, Teacher and Jogging Jeremy. This feature is entitled Sink or Swim?

Monochrome printing resumes on page 18, the contents of which are once again sourced from Cor!!’s Cor-medy Choice series of 1973. Referring again to Irmantas’ post on the subject, we can compare the opening of the original printing of Scarey Crow with its resurrection in the Cheeky Summer Special. As was the case with the repurposing of My Old Man’s A Junk Man, there has been some alteration of the reprint of Scarey Crow to tie it in with the Cheeky mythos – in this case the title panel has been re-jigged. When the Cor-medy Choice votes were tallied back in 1973, Scarey Crow came in at number 8, after which the crafty corvid took flight into comic history, which is probably why artist Terry Bave didn’t include the strip in the list of features he drew which appeared in the index of his autobiography Cartoons and Comic Strips. This not the final Cor-medy Choice failure to be recruited for this Special as we will see later.

 


 

There is further reprint raillery on the following 2 pages, although the material is not as obscure as the preceding feature. The Swots and The Blots originally appeared in Smash! In 1966 but later transferred into Valiant when the inevitable ‘merge’ took place. The feature has not previously appeared in any Cheeky-related publication, so one might have expected the first episode of the original run to be used to introduce the setup to readers who are encountering the antics of the titular tykes for the first time. However, IPC seem to have a policy of ignoring the original publication order when publishing recycled material. I believe this reprint is drawn by Ron Spencer which if I’m right and going by Lew Stringer’s post on the strip, means its original publication must have pre-dated the Valiant and Smash! merge.

 


 

5 of the preceding 6 pages have consisted of reprints, so it’s a relief to reach page 22 and witness the commencement of a new 2-page $6,000,000 Gran story. The aged automaton was among the features from Cheeky Weekly that transferred into Whoopee! in early 1980 and, apart from being numerically renamed (the strip had been known as 6 Million Dollar Gran in its Cheeky Weekly incarnation), the premise had continued unchanged. However, as from Whoopee and Cheeky’s 09 May 1981 edition, Gran had embarked on a new strip entitled Robot Granny, which saw her gain employment as a nanny. This strip in the 1981 Cheeky Special continues the old Gran format, with the synthetic senior citizen building a towering sandcastle while on a trip to the coast with ‘grandchildren’ Pete and Pauline Potts, regular characters from the original setup who weren’t carried over into the Robot Granny era. Ian knox is the artist – the first time he has drawn a Gran strip for a Cheeky Special or Annual (I suspect Ian’s Gran artwork which appeared in the 1980 Cheeky Annual was intended for the regular Cheeky Weekly).

A page of wild west witticisms follows as 6 single-panel gags drawn by Artie Jackson are presented under the banner of Cheeky ‘Holiday’ Chuckles, with Way Out West as the subject. These may be reprints, but the editor missed an opportunity to link the page to Cheeky by having it introduced by Six-Gun Sam.

Achieving human-powered flight is the aim of the neolithic nippers in the Cave Kids reprint that follows, after which we get another strip exhumed from the comics graveyard, as the response to Ringer Dinger’s telephonic request delivers the wrong kind of engineer, who proceeds to use dynamite to excavate a hole in the lawn. This strip exhibits a title panel design that has not been seen before in any of the previous Ringer Dinger reprints employed to fill various Cheeky publications - a banner-style title has previously been in evidence. I suspect this page-and-a-half tale, containing as it does a reference to summer in the third panel, may have originally appeared in a Summer Special – Terry Bave’s book indicates he drew Dinger in the Cor!! Summer Special of 1971 (presumably he meant Whizzer and Chips?).

 


Sharing the page with the concluding section of Dinger’s explosive escapade is a brainteaser entitled Silly Silhouettes, wherein 8 of Cheeky’s Krazy Town pals are depicted in the manner of the title, and the challenge is to identify all of the funny folk. Answers on page 52.

The Swots and The Blots then engage in 2 pages of reprinted classroom capers drawn this time by Mike Lacey, following which Artie Jackson is on hand to provide a further 6 single-panel Cheeky Holiday Chuckles gags, this time given the sub-heading of All-At-Sea and sharing a maritime theme.

Stress is again put upon the old grey matter on page 31, as we’re presented with a page headed Postcard Puzzler. The text tells us that Teacher, on a tour of Britain, has sent Cheeky 12 postcards but the location of each of the towns he has visited is indicated by picture clues only. For example, clue 10 shows a picture of a swan next to an image of the sea, and the answer required here is clearly the quaint British town of Birdwater. Ed McHenry is the artist for the pictorial clues, and there’s a pasted-in image of the toothy funster in the centre of the page, so this could very well be an altered puzzle from an earlier IPC title.

We’ve now arrived at the centre pages, which are occupied by Mustapha Million, who’s enjoying a suitably holiday-based escapade in colour with artwork by Joe McCaffrey (although the colouring may have been applied by someone else). The ‘middle eastern style’ title banner is very similar to that under which our moneyed mate is currently appearing in Whoopee!, but with some additional curly bits at each end (which may lead readers unfamiliar with the character to assume his surname is Millions) to fill some space because the original lettering was designed to fit the differently-proportioned weekly comic pages.

 


 

Sadly the colour printing proves short-lived as Cheeky returns in monochrome with another Cheeky’s Guide To Holidays, focusing on A Countryside Ramble. This 6 page sequence of hiking humour with the toothy funster and pals in the classic Cheeky mould is once again drawn by the inimitable Frank McDiarmid. A caption in the final panel tells us our grinning chum will return on page 58.

 


Page 40 is the location of a full-page advert for IPC’s weekly humour output carrying the banner ‘4 For Fun’ and displaying sample covers (with prices erased) of the titles Buster, Jackpot, Whizzer and Chips and Whoopee! and Cheeky (although as mentioned earlier the dropping of the reference to the toothy funster from the combined comic’s title was just weeks away at the time this Special was published).

There’s birthday bother in the Dinger household as the telephone-toting tyke and Dad realise they’ve forgotten Mum’s anniversary. The usual communication confusion - this time between the words ‘jewel’ (the perplexed pair consider a gem of some kind would be an appropriate gift) and ‘duel’ - results in the manifestation of a rapier-wielding gent who first engages Dinger in swordplay then suggests a duel with pistols. Dinger and Dad narrowly avoiding getting shot, and Mum turns up in the final panel to tell them her birthday is not until next month.

Following this rather hair-raising episode, it’s a relief to turn the page and witness a relaxed Cheeky enjoying a snooze in the garden as Snail embarks on his holiday in a feature entitled A Snail’s Tale. The mirthful mollusc does a circuit of the back garden, jesting with various inhabitants in the manner of his Snail of the Century circumnavigations of yesteryear, before returning to find the toothy funster still akip in the sun. Frank Mc Diarmid provides the visuals, which include a cameo by Dan Dan the Lavender Man. Cheeky's slithering sidekick had enjoyed a cover strip on the front of Whoopee! and Cheeky's Cheeky Section between 23 February and 04 October 1980, but since then has continued to accompany his grinning pal in the toothy funster's strip each week (the mirthful mollusc will later secure another Whoopee! feature of his own).


 

Sweets are rather surprisingly evident in the classroom next, though the Swots decorously consume some sugary comestibles while the Blots noisily masticate theirs. Teacher sends the whole class to the school dentist and the 2-page strip by Mike Lacey, won’t do much to allay the apprehensions of those readers with an aversion to needle and drill.

That stalwart of Annuals and Specials, the spot-the-difference page, is up next and 2 images, showing Mustapha Million enjoying a camel ride on the beach while his pals are mounted on the more quotidian donkeys, are presented for our variance-identifying pleasure. While it’s common to be challenged to spot 10 or 12 modifications in puzzles of this type, in this case there are a whopping 25 alterations to be identified. This image is specially drawn for the occasion (rather than being sourced from a panel of a Mustapha strip) by regular Mustapha artist Joe McCaffrey. Answers on page 52.

There are more donkeys-on-the-beach scenes on the next page, but of a photographic nature as the feature is titled Flash Harry’s Silly Seaside Snaps and ‘amusing’ captions, which Harry attributes to Cheeky, have been added. This page will engender nostalgic feelings among long-time fans of our toothy pal since it’s based on Cheeky Weekly’s occasional series Silly Snaps.

‘All Abroad’ is the sub-heading of the next batch of Cheeky Holiday Chuckles illustrated by Artie Jackson. This selection of gags, (among which is the hoary ‘My wife’s gone to the West Indies’ joke – although to be fair some of the young readers of this Special may well be encountering this old chestnut for the first time), benefit from colour printing.

Blurry colour of the type we experienced when reading The Cave Kids on page 16 is again in evidence as Ringer Dinger begins another escapade on page 49. The similarity of off-register printing on these pages is not a surprise since the contents of both exist on the same sheet of paper, which has been folded and transfixed by staples during the collation stage of the printing process. Squinting through the murky reproduction, it’s just about possible to follow the Dinger story in which a complaint from Mum about the slow cooking of the family dinner prompts our young hero to dial the Gas Board. The usual confusion results in the appearance of Baron Von Flugel and his Zeppelin. The conclusion of this episode differs from most Dinger escapades as none of the items summoned by the malfunctioning phone have dematerialised. The final panel shows the roof of the Dinger residence having been torn off as the crew of the airship fly away, leaving the Baron to face the wrath of the assembled family.

For the third time the compiler of this Special resorts to the 1973 run of Cor-medy Choice, and the strip selected for reprint this time is Sheik Oleg. As with the 2 previous Cor-Medy selections in this Special, an alteration has been made in order to tie the feature into Cheeky’s universe. In this case a banner caption has been added to the top of the page. Also, because of the original strip’s weak ending, a caption reading The End has been added to the concluding panel. Irmantas has posted the entire original story. Following the strip’s original publication, readers of Cor!!, clearly unimpressed with the Sheik and his camel capers, voted this effort into 10th and final place.

Now, you’re clearly wondering, like me, ‘why did the editor of this Cheeky Special choose to reprint some of the poorer-performing contenders in the original Cor-medy Choice results rather than the most popular?’ It’s possible that the winner, Val’s Vanishing Cream, had by this time been recalled from the IPC vaults and was functioning as a filler in a companion title. However I suspect that the 3 strips in question were chosen because of the 10 available those were the ones that could, with a minimum of effort, be given an apparent link to Cheeky’s universe.

Another batch of Cheeky Holiday Chuckles ensues, but whereas the earlier features under this title were comprised of 6 gags each, this batch with the sub-heading Wish You Were Here? (despite the vacation connotations of this phrase, the jokes presented here are all prison-related), contains 4 jokes only. The reason for the reduction in funnies is the presence on the same page of the answers to the various brainteasers presented earlier in the Special (unaccountably, it seems my answer to question 10 of the Postcard Puzzler was wrong).

Did each of the Cave Kids have individual names during their original Buster run? If so, none of the reprints selected for this Special name any of our prehistoric pals with the exception of Rocky, who is the main character to feature on their page 53 adventure. He’s looking forward to his birthday in a week’s time and plans to enjoy a ‘last play’ with the toys he received a year earlier, in this episode probably drawn by Leo Baxendale.

Sweets are once again driving the plot of The Swots and The Blots in their episode on pages 54 and 55. The School Inspector is due and the sugary treats with which he rewards diligent pupils are the target of the ruffian Blots. This rather shocking tale, featuring kidnapping and threats of violence, is drawn by an artist I can’t identify.

 


There’s a much calmer atmosphere as an original 2 page strip featuring Calculator Kid follows. Calc has a plan to grant Charlie’s wish for a swimming pool, as Terry Bave echoes the plot of his earlier Ringer Dinger script using the same desire for garden-based bathing as its starting point. Charlie’s extravagantly-moustached dad makes an appearance which is always a bonus. This feature was among the strips from Cheeky Weekly to be carried forward to Whoopee! and Cheeky, where it continues to appear.

Cheeky’s final investigation for this year into various forms of holiday begins, as promised at the conclusion of the previous Cheeky’s Guide To Holidays sequence, on page 58. This 6 page set by Frank McDiarmid gives us another view of Krazy Town’s seafront which was glimpsed on rare occasions during Cheeky Weekly’s run - here, here, here and here. Something we’ve never seen before is Krazy Town pier, which is on view in the background of one of the panels as Cheeky conducts his disguised tour of the environs. The map of Krazy Town which appeared way back in the first issue of Krazy gave no indication that the toothy funster’s patch was a coastal location.

 



 

Another slightly blurry Cave Kids strip in colour is given the honour of bringing proceedings to a conclusion on the back cover, with a tale in which Rocky is tasked with providing Chiefy, who’s intent on dispatching a grub-grabbing mammoth, with an arrow.

In common with the 3 previous Cheeky Specials, this year’s consists of 64 pages, with 8 printed (not always in the most legible manner) in colour. For the first time, the cost has not risen, with last year’s 45p cover price maintained.

All the ex-Cheeky Weekly features currently appearing in Whoopee! and Cheeky are represented in this Special, with the exception of Paddywack, who has been included in all the previous Cheeky Annuals and Specials. His absence from this Special is something of a surprise as he's the current Whoopee! and Cheeky cover feature. However, the fact that our bumbling chum is given the prized front page slot in that weekly title is in itself surprising as he has never attracted enough votes to appear among the top ten favourite characters in any of the 3 popularity polls conducted since Whoopee! subsumed Cheeky Weekly.

Disaster Des, Tub and Speed Squad, features running in Cheeky Weekly at the time of its cancellation but which failed to transfer into Whoopee! and Cheeky, appear in this Special as they have done in the 2 previous Cheeky Specials (their late debuts in Cheeky Weekly meant they missed the 1978 Cheeky Summer Special). Elephant on the Run and Why, Dad, Why?, similarly late arrivals to Cheeky Weekly and which also failed to survive the merge, are absent this year despite appearing in the 1980 Special.

Reprints of The Cave Kids continue, their antediluvian antics having previously appeared in last year's Special and 1981 Annual. The Swots and The Blots are new reprints (if that's not a contradiction in terms), replacing recycled appearances by The Gang and Soggy the Sea Monster who all served to pad out last year's Special and Annual, and Copy Kate who appeared in last year's Special but not the Annual. It's quite possible that all existing material featuring these characters has been exhausted.

It seems that the 1979 Cheeky Summer Special, with its reprint content amounting to one quarter of the total elements, was something of an anomaly in this respect since this year's and those of 1978 and 1980 all include one third reprinted material (I have only included those strips that I know to be reprints in the total for this Special. Those about which I have only suspicions - mainly gag and puzzle pages as referred to above - have not been counted as reprint).

YEAR TITLE TOTAL_ELEMENTS ORIGINAL_ELEMENTS REPRINT_ELEMENTS REPRINT_PERCENT
1978 Cheeky Summer Special 63 42 21 33.33
1979 Cheeky Summer Special 65 50 15 23.08
1980 Cheeky Holiday Special 65 44 21 32.31
1981 Cheeky Summer Special 66 44 22 33.33

It's a pity once again that the colour printing has been allocated to reprints, gags and puzzles rather than Cheeky pages, but it seems the printing process limits the use of colour to the front and back covers, pages 16-17, 32-33, and 48-49. The Cheeky Holiday sequences all exceed 2 pages, so the editor possibly felt that it's preferable to print them entirely monochrome rather than partly in colour. However, the 2-page Snail's Tale could have benefited from the colour available on 16-17 or 48-49, leaving a multi-hued Mustapha in the centre.

It's great to see Frank McDiarmid providing his usual excellent, energetic and fun-filled artwork for the Cheeky features in this Special (he has contributed art for all the previous Specials except for 1980). There are 19 pages of Cheeky strips in this year's Special, including the cover (and I'm including the 2 Snail pages in that figure). The 1978 Special contained 25 Cheeky pages, 1979 contained 23 and last year's contained 15 pages of japes with our toothy pal.
