Cheeky Weekly was a British comic published every Monday by IPC Magazines Ltd. It ran for 117 issues from (issues dates) 22 October 1977 to 2 February 1980, failing to be published for 3 weeks in December 1978 due to an industrial dispute. It merged with stable-mate Whoopee!, initially as a 16-page pull-out section. The title character originated in an earlier comic called Krazy as a character in the strip The Krazy Gang and also the star of the ‘Ello, It’s Cheeky feature, and proved popular enough to get his own comic, which managed to outlive Krazy itself. The first issue came with a free “Red Jet Rattler” (a build-it-yourself model aeroplane).

Strips included…

“Calculator Kid”
“Fangs of Fear”
“Paddywack”
“The Skateboard Squad!”
“Tub”
“Walter Wurx”

Cheeky had a total of 7 Annuals from 1979-1985. Cheeky also had a total of 5 Specials from 1978-1982.

    This comment is made by Andy, but something went wrong.

    Cheeky comic – or Cheeky Weekly, as some might feel is the correct title because it is what is actually printed on the masthead, but I’m going to stick with Cheeky for the purposes of this blog just because it’s what I’ve always called it – launched on 22 October 1977 and ran for nearly two and a half years. The eponymous Cheeky had been a member of the Krazy Gang in the pages of Krazy comic, and had earned the rare honour of his very own IPC publication. In fact it was another offshoot that presumably led to Cheeky going it alone: in September 1977 DC Thomson had launched Plug, a standalone title for the similarly buck-toothed goon from the ranks of the Beano’s Bash Street Kids, although their launch dates are so close that it’s possible Plug was in fact a response to (and attempt to beat to the newstands) Cheeky.
    Cheeky the comic had a fairly unique format which was about as high-concept as it got for 1970s humour titles. Each weekly issue was structured around the seven-day routine of Cheeky, who would would chat directly to the readers and trade copious one-liners with a huge cast of fellow residents of Krazy Town. It had a full-on, bonkers tone to it with loads of very funny background detail, all drawn by the remarkable Frank McDiarmid.
    Each day’s gag-peddling would end with a lead-in to one of the comic’s strips by other artists, which we would read as through the eyes of Cheeky himself. It would usually go something like this:
    Sunday
    Cheeky does his paper round, a bulging bag marked ‘Sunday Sob’ sagging off his shoulder. In the last frame he would narrowly avoid being mown down by the Skateboard Squad, whose own strip would follow on the next page.
    Sunday evening
    Cheeky would end the day snuggling into bed with a ‘James Bold’ mystery novel which would lead us into a two-page adventure serial. After the end of the first serial (Fangs of Fear, drawn by Massimo Belardinelli), Cheeky had to find new volumes of Bold’s further adventures on the shelves of his local newsagent. Each week he would hatch a fresh plan to sneak in and read a chapter without paying for the book.
    Monday
    Cheeky would rush home from school to catch 6 Million Dollar Gran on the telly. This later moved to Sunday evenings.
    Tuesday
    Cheeky would make a secret visit to the attic for a sneaky read of a page from one of Mum and Dad’s childhood comics – a reprinted page from a classic comic from the 1940s or 1950s such as the original Knockout, Film Fun and TV Fun.
    Wednesday
    On Wednesday Cheeky was on babysitting duty, ‘responsible’ for the scheming Baby Burpo, whom he would try to scare to sleep by reading him a cautionary tale from his book of Creepy Sleepy Tales. Needless to say, Cheeky usually ended up more spooked than Baby Burpo.
    Thursday
    The day would end with an invitation for Cheeky to watch his friend Oscar’s latest home movie reel – a comedy riff on a popular movie, drawn by Jack Clayton.
    Friday
    Cheeky would somehow get hold of a copy of The Mystery Comic – ‘that comic that we can never get in the shops’ – which would allow us to join him reading the fiscal japes of Mustapha Million.
    Saturday
    The week would end with Cheeky and various pals going to the cinema, terrorising the Commissionaire and Ursula the Usherette, and watching a double bill of a reprinted Hannah Barbera strip and another adventure serial (initially Space Family Robinson).
    It was a great idea for a new comic, mixing genuinely entertaining new material and a handful of reprints with relatively seamless ingenuity for most of its run (sadly during its last year it gave up on the conceit of Cheeky introducing all the other strips, leaving it not much different from all the other humour anthology comics on the shelves). Frank McDiarmid drew with fantastic imagination, often packing three or four separate visual gags into a single frame, and the vast range of recurring characters that Cheeky would meet on his daily rounds gave the comic an enormous cast list considering its relatively short two-and-a-half year run.
    The comic was one of only three new humour titles (disregarding the Disney-licensed publications) launched by IPC during the second half of the 1970s. The other two were Krazy – from which Cheeky sprang, shortly before it was merged into Whizzer and Chips – and Jackpot – which soon replaced it on the shelves. Its stablemates – Whizzer and Chips, Buster and Whoopee! – each had their own distinct flavours but their strips usually had a fairly traditional, late-1960s/early-1970s feel to them.
    One aspect of Cheeky with which I recall being particularly fascinated was The Mystery Comic. As described above, The Mystery Comic was for its first year referenced only in cryptic terms – a comic that was fiendishly difficult for Cheeky to lay his hands on each week, but which the rest of Krazy Town seemed to conspire to get to him one way or another so that he could read the latest instalment of Mustapha Million. We had no idea what else was in this obscure publication until 30 September 1979 when, wonder of wonders, The Mystery Comic in its six-strip entirety started to appear as a pull-out insert in the middle of Cheeky itself.
    I loved the cover of each issue of The Mystery Comic – a peculiar design in which the lead story was surrounded by a thick border populated by all manner of oddball characters, including Ena Sharples, the Mona Lisa and a man with a football for a head. That there was no explanation for any of these faces – nor for what appeared to be Sid’s Snake from Whizzer and Chips in the insert’s masthead – just added to the intrigue and the feeling that here was something truly different.
    The contents of The Mystery Comic were fairly regular fare. The first story, Tub, about an obese boy, is as awkward to read today as Lily Pop and Gunga Jim. Why, Dad, Why? was about a lad who constantly asked his long-suffering, short-fused dad to explain everything. The Mystery Comic had its own adventure serial – Mystery Boy – which followed the travels across 1940 Britain, in search of his identity, of a young boy who had lost his memory when a crashing German bomber fell into the train in which he was evacuating London.
    The wackiest of the line-up was Elephant on the Run, in which an elephant flees the circus pursued each week by ‘The Man in the Plastic Mac’. Mustapha Million continued; this strip used a fairly familiar British comics trope – the ridiculously rich kid who could buy whatever he wanted for his pals. Mustapha’s unique defining characteristic was that he was an oil-rich Arab, and presumably a Manchester City supporter. And then there was Disaster Des, about a lad who strolls the land singing ‘Doody Dum’ oblivious to the trail of destruction he leaves in his wake.
    An odd mix of stories made special by the enigma of the mini-comic into which they were gathered together. The Mystery Comic lasted nine months as a self-contained section of Cheeky, after which its strips were spread out through the rest of the comic as Cheeky itself gave up on its original gimmick of providing a Cheeky’s-world-introduction for each of the secondary strips. Cheeky the character announced this move with the on-message excitement that usually heralded a merger, but it was a damp squib. Cheeky by this stage (the summer of 1979) seemed to have lost much of its creative impulse and impudence, and there was less to distinguish it from its IPC humour stablemates. It was itself merged into Whoopee! in early 1980.

    The original story in the office at Ipc Magazines Ltd, of how Yikky-Boo was created, is
    that when Andy tried to frighten different Cartoon Artist to shout only Boo, he had a bit of an Itchy throat, so as he cough and shout Boo, it came out YIKKY-BOO, so Frank decided without Andy permission to create the Character Yikky-Boo based on him as a Kid of 13 years old, back in the year 1978. Andy was also bribed by many Cartoon artists to give them many ideas for characters for the comics, as a Kid, by giving him comics six weeks ahead before they came into the shops. That went on for 4 years, every six weeks Andy visiting Ipc Magazines Ltd, at Stamford Street, Kings Reach Tower, getting free comics, 12 different titles six weeks in advance. This made Andy popular at School, all his school friends, never understood how Andy got comics before they came to the shops, but many of these school friends became the basis for many of the comic characters, that Andy shared ideas with the different cartoonists. Eventually, despite the bribes, it did pay off in the end, in Andygetting a career as a cartoonist, editor and writer.

    For the first Whoopee! merged issue, Cheeky had the middle 16 pages (half the comic). Cheeky himself had 4 pages. Six Million Dollar Gran, renamed “Robot Granny” had 2 pages.

The letters page was renamed “Whoopee Chit-Chat” and usually occupied one and a half pages (the prize was £2 plus a Whoopee! logo’d T-shirt. Mustapha Million had 2 pages, though in 1981 many of these were reprints. On the 16 February 1980 issue a brand new single page comic strip Chip began. The other pages had advertising.

    The last issue of Whoopee! to feature the Cheeky logo on the cover was dated 25 July 1981. The Whoopee! dated 5 September 1981 was the last to feature a 4-page Cheeky story and hereafter the Cheeky’s comic strips were distributed throughout the comic (rather than the 16 central pages).

    It is not surprising, with his blood-curdling cry, that he frightened the bejabbers out of everyone.

    Walter wurx was affected very badly, by the whole experience of ten pin Bowling, which is not surprising, considering, when there was a SPLIT in the game it remind him to split and go to the little room, also when there was a STRIKE, it reminded him to strike to run to you know where, also the same with a SPARE, he was reminded he cannot spare a moment to go do a tinkle, also when there was a GUTTER Ball, it remind him he had GUTTER [Go to] the Loo.

    As for Gunga Jim and Emma Bunton, sparks flied between them, over the copyright of the expression ”SPICE UP YOUR LIFE”, Gunga Jim keep insisting that ”Spice up your Life”, originated from India with Herbs and Spices in Curry, he kept saying ; ”Curry, Curry Hot Stuff, it will SPICE UP YOUR LIFE.”

    Of course the Monkey went Bananas and now is chasing Louise everywhere, and she desperately tries to give the Monkey the slip and Cheeky cannot resist by saying : ”Now you know how I felt all those years”

    Where did the word ”Paddywack” originated from ?

    The phrase originated from the old English nursery rhyme, “This old man”. Nick nack or “knick knack” refers to the sound produced when playing the bones, as a musical instrument that later evolved into using metal spoons held loosely between the finger and stroked across a board, a shoe or most commonly the fingers of the opposite hand.

    Each verse refers to the common practice in Ireland of of after a feast of lamb or swine, taking the rib bones and fashioning them into a musical instrument, using it as a rhythmic instrument of an impromptu band that might also include a lute and singers.

    Paddywhack has several meaning and it is unclear which meaning the nursery rhyme intended. One definition is the tough elastic ligament found in many four legged animals such as a lamb that holds the head up. It was often eaten but is tough and may have been fed to the farm dog and referred to as as a bone. I tend to think it was referring to this definition and think the entire line in the nursery rhyme means that after playing the bones and singing songs after the meal, that the bones and paddywhack was given to the family dog to eat.
    nick nack paddy wack

    This old man, he played one,
    He played knick-knack on my thumb;
    With a knick-knack paddywhack,
    Give the dog a bone,
    This old man came rolling home.

    This old man, he played two,
    He played knick-knack on my shoe;
    With a knick-knack paddywhack,
    Give the dog a bone,
    This old man came rolling home.

    This old man, he played three,
    He played knick-knack on my knee;
    With a knick-knack paddywhack,
    Give the dog a bone,
    This old man came rolling home.

    This old man, he played four,
    He played knick-knack on my door;
    With a knick-knack paddywhack,
    Give the dog a bone,
    This old man came rolling home.

    This old man, he played five,
    He played knick-knack on my hive;

    Sadly , Krazy lasted just a whole eighteen months (continuing as an annual for several years until 1985) but as Cheeky had proved he had legs (and teeth) he was given his very own comic – Cheeky Weekly in October 1977.
    Cheeky continued a similar theme as originated in Krazy , but losing the Gang (who went on to appear in their own weekly strip in whizzer and Chips).
    How Cheeky managed to be in both comics is truly amazing, in one he wears his Jersey with a K ., and in the other he wears a Jersey with a C ., — it makes you wonder if he had a twin double or a cousin or something with the same name — just spelt different — one being Cheeky and the other Keechy — Ha ha!

    Cheeky Weekly Comic and Krazy Comic are to be revived with the new Title ”Cheeky and Krazy weekly” with new Characters for Cheeky to meet.

    Keechy is his cousin.

    The Snail has a name now – his name is SHELLdon.
    Snail had been Cheeky’s faithful (but silent) slimy sidekick since issue 6 of Krazy in November 1976, but over two and a half years later our mollusc mate was elevated to become the star of his very own feature.
    Snail of the Century was the last original strip to commence in Cheeky Weekly, making its debut in the edition dated 14 July 1979 and completing the comic’s ‘new look’ which had been initiated a week earlier.
    It took him nearly 42 years to finally get his name SHELLdon.
    In his new comic strip, which is called ”SHELLdon the Slimy one.”
    He slithers here, there and everywhere.
    Just like Cheeky got his side kick SHELLdon the slimy one, his Snail, years before, in Buster comic, Buster also had a pet Worm called SQUORM.
    Plans are made for ”SHELLdon the Slimy one [Snail] to meet up with SQUORM the Squigly one.”

    This one of the following stories :

    Yikky-Boo went Bowling with Walter Wurx, also with the rest of our Team of Cartoon Artists. [Terry Bave, Frank McDiarmid, Ian knox]
    There was a tournament of 11 competitors in ten pin bowling, with the result, that Yikky-Boo being the ultimate winner!
    It is not surprising, with his blood-curdling cry, that he frightened the bejabbers out of everyone.

    Walter wurx was affected very badly, by the whole experience of ten pin Bowling, which is not surprising, considering, when there was a SPLIT in the game it remind him to split and go to the little room, also when there was a STRIKE, it reminded him to strike to run to you know where, also the same with a SPARE, he was reminded he cannot spare a moment to go do a tinkle, also when there was a GUTTER Ball, it remind him he had GUTTER [Go to] the Loo.
    Walter Wurx was introduced to our chinese friend Bli Bli Bli bli Bloop, when he heard his name BLI BLI BLI BLOOP, it reminded him to go to the little room.

    Baker’s Boy meets Emma ”BUNTON” and cracks a joke about her name, reminds him of the ”TON of BUN’s” in his tray.
    As for Gunga Jim and Emma Bunton, sparks flied between them, over the copyright of the expression ”SPICE UP YOUR LIFE”, Gunga Jim keep insisting that ”Spice up your Life”, originated from India with Herbs and Spices in Curry, he kept saying ; ”Curry, Curry Hot Stuff, it will SPICE UP YOUR LIFE.”
    Yikky-Boo let out his Blood-curdling Cry and got 10 Lane STRIKES at one go in ten pin bowling.
    Gunga Jim argued by saying : ”Curry Curry Hot Stuff, they are not STRIKES, as you shattered the Pins, SPLIT them to pieces, so they are all SPLITS!”

    Yikky-Boo gets the shock of his life when he meets Danga-Boo-Boo, as he yells much louder.
    Is Danga-Boo-Boo more louder then Yikky-Boo ?
    Although Yikky-Boo got a shock of his life for once, after scaring so many people over the years – – he is more determined then ever to set the record straight, by coming up with a louder noise then ”YIKKY-BOO” or ”DANGA-BOO-BOO” !
    What new noise will it be ?
    With time it will all be revealed, with more ”SHOCK’S and SCARE’S” in store for everyone in ”Cheeky and Krazy Town!”

    This funny scenario is one of the new story in the revived Cheeky Weekly.

    Hid Kid finally reveals himself to everyone and explains why he hid all those years !
    ”Hid Kid” had many reasons to hide his face from the world. Here are some of the reasons :
    1] ”Hit Kid” from Krazy and ”Hid Kid” from Cheeky are related. They are both Cousins. ”Hit Kid” was hired to do contracts to Hit on bullies of local kids. As his Cousin ”HIT KID” also never shown his face, Bullies who had a HIT on them, went out for revenge to find him, assuming that HIT KID never showed his face, they thought it was ”HID KID”. So ”HID KID” went into hiding not to be harmed.
    2] ”Yikky-Boo” cannot sneak up behind and frighten him.
    3] ”HID KID” was also scared of LIBBY, that she might wallop him with her Protest Board, another reason to hide.
    4] ”HID KID” was also scared of LOUISE, that she might accidently Kiss him too, if she knew what he looked like. [He also was another Cousin of Cheeky and looked like him].

    Louise still puckers up her lips to try and give Cheeky a Kiss, and finds out she made a mistake, by kissing a Monkey instead.
    Of course the Monkey went Bananas and now is chasing Louise everywhere, and she desperately tries to give the Monkey the slip and Cheeky cannot resist by saying : ”Now you know how I felt all those years”
    The Monkey that keeps chasing Louise everywhere is named ”Monkey MONK KEY”, and he has a bald patch on top of his head, which makes him look like a Monk and he runs around holding a Key, to try to unlock Louise Heart for him.
    It was Love at first sight for him, and he is absolutely Banana’s for Louise.
    Cheeky is happy, finally he has her not bothering him anymore, as she is running away from the Monkey all the time.
    Cheeky says : ”Ooo Hay the Noo ! Serve’s her right!”

    In the new improved revised Cheeky and Krazy Weekly ”Elephant on the Run” and the ”Man in the Plastic Mac” will be back for more running and chasing.
    In one of the stories , you will also see Louise running away while being chased by the Monkey Monk Key trying to kiss her.
    Then the Man in the Plastic Mac says : ”That’s new ! should I look into this, if there is a reward.”
    The Elephant on the run says to Louise : ”At least you know how I feel running away from being chased.”
    Louise reply back to the Elephant : ”Have you ever had a Monkey try to kiss you ?”
    The Monkey screams at Louise : ”Come back. I love you, marry me.”

    What is the Mystery behind Bubblegum Boy ? How did he get up into the Sky ? Will he ever come down ?
    Soon to be revealed !
    Bubblegum Boy once was Chewing gum, trying to blow a big bubble, as he got carried away seeing how big he can make it, it just lifted him off the ground [he literally got carried away] and due to desperation in his new found predicament, he just keeps blowing his Bubble all the time, so he will not plummet to the ground.
    Question left, is how does he keep himself supplied with enough Bubble Gum in order never to fall down ?
    That Mystery will be revealed also in the new ”Cheeky and Krazy Weekly.”
    The Parachutist that keeps landing in the wrong place, is revealed to be a secret agent, also has been supplying Bubblegum Boy with Bubble Gum so he be okay.
    That solves the Mystery how he kept supplied, but leaves the Question , why not the parachutist help him come down with him , with the parachute, or supply him with a parachute to come down ?
