There does not seem to be a thread dedicated to School Fun here, so I shall create one.

School Fun was another short-lived but fondly remembered funny comic. It was dedicated to funnies with school themes. It was launched on 15 October 1983, but only lasted for 33 issues before merging with Buster on 1 June 1984. While it lasted it produced some memorable strips such as Schoolditz and E.T.T. (Extra Terrestrial Teacher).

The lineup for School Fun was:
Junior Ed
Softy Sir
Coronation Street School
Creepy Crawler
Test Yourself Page
Time Bus
Walt Teaser
B.Ware - Caretaker
The School Team
E.T.T. (Extra Terrestrial Teacher)
Grange Hill Juniors
Teachers United
Ho-Ho Homework
Schoolditz
Young Arfur
School Belle



Later strips:

Willy Wonty
Slowcoach
 (started with Buster merger)

And here is the very first episode of Schoolditz. Most of their schemes to escape Schoolditz failed because the headmaster goofed up Gilligan-style.
