Cheeky Weekly is a great comic wished I was older enough (3 years old in 1977) it really interacted with the reader. It was a diary of the week...you could even add at the bottom of the page your own day...
Frank McDiarmid drew the Cheeky strip and met many zany characters to tell and recieve jokes from. You'll see all of them on the covers which will be uploaded on the blog. I also liked how the artist mentioned the writer or himself which broke down the barriers between reader and artist.
Strips were also intergrated in like Cheeky watching the telly to see Six million dollar Gran by Ian Knox(wonder if it inspired Super Gran telly program)
a mate of his shows his cartoon of Paddywack....or a friend shows a film to Cheeky the home movie story both by Jack Clayton.
They go to the cinema on Sat to see a film which shows the adventure story like Space Family Robinson...
Or Cheeky goes to the attic to read his Dads old comics and we get to see a highlight from the past..like from Tv Fun...Film Fun...Knockout 1950's
and many more...
so you can see it was all very clever and you enjoyed it with Cheeky.
thanks John Gilheany for lots of scans..
