The Funday Times was a section of the UK Sunday Times. It was intended mainly for children, and included several comic strips, including Dennis and Gnasher, Rex and Tex, Beryl the Peril, Fans Utd., Scooby Doo, Space Raoul, The Powerpuff Girls, Creature Feature, Newton’s Law, Jarvis, Squirt, The Flintstones, Robot Crusoe, Goosebumps and The Simpsons. Launched in 1989 it originally featured adult cartoons like Modesty Blaise but quickly dropped them in favour of more child friendly fare such as Asterix.

It also included reviews of various toys and songs, interviews with celebrities, including Will Smith, Gail Emms and Matt Groening, and interesting events coming up during the week.

The last printed edition of the Funday Times was published on Sunday 12 March 2006. After that date, it was only available online. The print edition of the Funday Times ran for nearly 20 years before it was discontinued. The website mostly concentrated on features and games, although there were comic strips on the website that were originally in the printed version.

The Funday Times website closed down on 5 January 2007.

The Funday Times returned for a one-off special on 1 April 2011 to promote the ‘Rio’ movie. Further issues of the Funday Times were released to promote ‘Ice Age 4’ (23 June 2012) and ‘Frankenweenie’ (14 October 2012).

    “We are looking at all the options, including going online,” she said. She did not deny that the options included axing the print section.
