Profile - Gloomy Glad

Glad wasn't so much bipolar as north polar.  Usually accompanied by her own black rain cloud (a snow cloud in cold weather), Glad was one of those people for whom not only is the glass half empty, it's cracked and has something nasty floating in it.

Cheeky showed his caring side with Glad, always trying to cheer her up when she told her tales of woe, only to find that his attempt to lift her spirits plunged her further into despair.

To prove that Glad's life wasn't one of unremitting despondency, Cheeky's writer allowed us to witness a few occasions (four, to be precise*) when Glad cracked a smile.

Glad's cousin, Dismal Daisy, made a single appearance, in the cinema interval of the comic dated 28 October 1978.

* Boxing Day in the 31 December 1977 issue, Saturday in the 10 June 1978 issue, Sunday evening in the 16 September 1978 issue and Wednesday in the 05 May 1979 issue. An apparently beaming Glad was seen on Saturday in the 13 January 1979 comic, but it turned out she was wearing a mask.

  1. I don’t suppose Cheeky ever said, “I’m feeling Glad all over”; that’d have been crossing a line, even for our joke-fixated hero!
