The features - Why,Dad, Why?

For almost the first year of Cheeky Weekly, the Friday feature regularly saw Cheeky seeking out a copy of The Mystery Comic, in order to read the Mustapha Million strip.  Initially, Mustapha's was the only strip from the Mystery Comic that appeared in Cheeky Weekly.  However, when Cheeky Weekly underwent a revamp in the 30 September 1978 issue, the whole of The Mystery Comic (assuming it was a rather thin offering at only 8 pages) took up residence in the centre pages.  Why, Dad, Why? was one of the features in the mysterious publication.  The concept of The Mystery Comic continued until the issue dated 30 June 1979, after which the characters who had previously been confined within the centre section (including Why, Dad, Why?) were assimilated into Cheeky Weekly.

Why, Dad, Why? clocked up 52 appearances in Cheeky Weekly, and survived until the final issue.

The title of Why, Dad, Why? explains all - infuriatingly inquisitive son asks long-suffering father a question and comic chaos ensues, often involving dad in a painful mishap.  Neither father nor son was named in the strip. The story would often end with Dad pursuing Son, intent on violent retribution.


WDW was a rehash of a strip that had earlier appeared in IPC stablemate, Whizzer and Chips.  In the same way that Cheeky Weekly's James Bold feature re-used old Maxwell Hawke scripts from Buster, but with new artwork, Why, Dad, Why? used scripts from the earlier version of WDW, but redrawn by John K. Geering.  Bruce has put up an example of the original WDW from Whizzer and Chips on his Comic Archive.  I thought it might be interesting to compare that original strip with how it was re-interpreted in Cheeky Weekly dated 01 September 1979, just over 8 years after the original version appeared...
compare with Bruce's posted strip

John Geering totally restyled Dad and Son, who had appeared rather nondescript in the original strips.  In the new version, Son sported rather striking headgear. 

The Mystery Comic spanned pages 13 to 20 of Cheeky Weekly, and WDW was most frequently to be found on page 14, but in the 12 May 1979 issue, Dad and Son made it onto The Mystery Comic's cover.  When the Mystery Comic idea was dropped, the characters who had previously been confined within the centre section were freed to roam the comic, and WDW was then most often to be found on pages 21 or 27 (appearing 7 times on each).  The final issue of Cheeky Weekly, dated 02 February 1980, saw Why, Dad, Why? appear on page 3, the closest it ever got to the front of the comic (although Dad and Son did appear on the cover of the 11 November 1978 issue, promoting their strip inside).

The scripts were above average in terms of ingenuity and humorous content, so it's easy to see why the editor chose to re-use them.  John Geering's artwork certainly brought out all the amusement potential, with poor Dad's physical (and mental) torments depicted in wince-making detail.

The title of the strip appeared across the top of the page, with Son's face appearing to the left of the title, and Dad's to the right, except on 14 July 1979, 28 July 1979, 04 August 1979, 08 September 1979, 22 December 1979, 29 December 1979 and 19 January 1980 when the positions were reversed.  However, the depictions of the two protagonists changed each week, with a variety of expressions on view.  The title over the strip in the comic dated 21 April 1979 showed Son and Dad as cap-wearing eggs in egg-cups, to match the Easter-themed story.

In the final panel of the story dated 24 February 1979 we learn that The Two Ronnies are Son's favourite stars.

The story dated 28 July 1979 shows a poster which reads 'Read Cheeky Weekly'.  Had it appeared in an issue in which The Mystery Comic concept was still current, this could have introduced another reality conundrum, since it would mean that Cheeky Weekly was available in Cheeky's universe.  If this was so, Cheeky and his pals would not only be able to read about themselves, but it would mean that The Mystery Comic, as well as being a stand-alone publication, was also available in Cheeky Weekly, and why therefore were the Cheeky's Week characters seeking out The Mystery Comic when they could get it in Cheeky Weekly?  One reason, of course, was that there was no price on The Mystery Comic cover, so presumably it was free.  However, as mentioned above, this is all somewhat academic as by the time the strip which advertised Cheeky Weekly within it was published, the Mystery Comic concept had been dropped.

All the WDW strips were single-pagers, of which 6 were in full colour.


Dad gleefully contemplates administering a mallet to Son's cranium on the Pin-Up Pal poster in the 10 March 1979 issue.

Why, Dad, Why? made Star Guest appearances in Whoopee! dated 05 May 1979 and Whizzer and Chips dated 12 May 1979.

Cheeky Weekly cover date 11 February 1978

After last week's special issue we return to relative normality for issue number 17.  The banner across the top of the cover announces the Name the Snail reader participation feature, and the main part of the cover invites submissions for Joke-Box Jury with the chance to win £2.00.  The remainder of the cover is taken up by the What A Cheek feature, in which there are a couple of puzzling elements - why is the bird on the TV aerial in the first panel laughing, and where did Cheeky get that umbrella from?  Snail obviously keeps a rain hat in his shell.

On Sunday Cheeky meets Bump-Bump Bernie and decides to count how many accidents the hapless Bernie has during the week.  This is the catalogue of calamities that Bernie is subject to…


Sunday - walks into lamppost
Monday - trips over paving stone
Tuesday - slips on banana skin
Wednesday - falls down Manhole Man's manhole
Thursday - crashes cartie
Friday - trips over dog
Saturday - gets hit by football
Interval - falls from balcony onto Crunching Chris
Saturday (after cinema) - struck by letter M from cinema sign

Cheeky then declares that Bernie has had 9 accidents, just before Bernie trips over the letter M.

There's an outbreak of graffiti in Krazy Town park this week.  Fortunately The Skateboard Squad apprehend the culprit and put him to good use painting lines on the football pitch.  Who needs ASBOs when Skipper, Skatie and Wipeout are around?

On Sunday evening, Cheeky wangles a visit to his Aunt and Uncle's in order that he can watch 6 Million Dollar Gran.  No wonder Cheeky has such distinctive dentition - even the members of his family who aren't blood relatives have goofy teeth.

The Joke-Box Jury page, as featured on this week's front cover, includes a selection of £2.00 - winning funnies, not all of which would be considered appropriate today.  The joke-judging panel on the feature are the same as those shown on the cover, so well done to all concerned - I half expected the characters on the panel inside to be different.


This week's Home Movie page sees Sherlock Holmes meet an assortment of TV characters while pursuing a missing Lollipop.





In Space Family Robinson, Suzie and Ben meet a memorable foe, King Blubber, who will be back in future episodes.


The back cover rounds off the issue with Snail demanding (rather rudely, in my opinion) "Oi! What Is My Name?".  Readers who send in the names that Snail likes best will win £2.00. Gary Gastropod?…Mickey Mollusc?…now where's my pen…

The Cheeky's Week art this issue is provided by Frank McDiarmid pencils (5 elements), Frank McDiarmid pencils 2 (a further 5 elements), and making his first contibution to Cheeky's Week, Jim Watson, who furnishes us with 3 elements.  It's interesting that the 'count Bernie's accidents' storyline is maintained across 3 different art sources, although I'm assuming that Frank McDiarmid provided the pencils for 5 of the elements.  I have in the past been rather dismissive about how the daily elements of Cheeky's Week were assembled, but this issue shows that some care was taken to have a consistent line running throughout the week, despite 3 different artist combinations being involved.

Profile - Paddywack

Paddywack, in appearing to occupy two levels of reality within the comic, qualifies to appear in a Feature post, and a Profile post.

For an explanation of the dual nature of Paddywack's relationship with Cheeky's universe, and a suggested resolution of this apparent dichotomy, see the Paddywack Feature post.

Paddywack appeared only once in Cheeky's Week, during the cinema interval in the issue dated 02 September 1978.


Paddywack made a further appearance outside of his own strip, when he was one of the guests at Pete and Pauline Potts' party in the 6 Million Dollar Gran story in Cheeky Weekly dated 06 October 1979.

The features - Paddywack

Forgive me for doing two consecutive Features posts, but I have been struck by the realisation that, like 6 Million Dollar Gran, Paddywack appears to straddle the reality boundary of Cheeky's universe.  Initially Paddywack appears as, from Cheeky's perspective, a fictional character drawn by Doodle Doug.  However in the 02 September 1978 issue, Paddywack is seen in the Krazy Town cinema talking to Cheeky.

Before trying to make sense of Paddywack's ambiguous relationship with Cheeky's world, let's look at the history of the feature.

Junior artist and Cheeky's pal Doodle Doug returned to the pages of Cheeky Weekly in the issue dated 08 July 1978, having been absent since the 14 January 1978 comic.  In his initial run of appearances, Doug's function was to draw a single-row gag strip each week.  These strips didn't feature any recurring characters or situations.  However, on his return on 08 July 1978, Doug tells Cheeky "I've got a whole page for you to look at!  I've called it Paddywack!", and the ensuing page does indeed focus on Paddywack, and includes 2 gags.  From that issue, all the strips 'drawn by Doug' focused on Paddywack.

The following week's Paddywack page featured 3 gags, and included a caption inviting readers to send in any "Paddy Wack-type jokes".  In another of the inconsistencies that featured in the comic, the panel refers to Paddy Wack, while Doodle Doug and the feature's title referred to the character as Paddywack.

The first Paddywack page to feature jokes submitted by readers was in the 12 August 1978 issue.  Two gags featured on the page, one sent in by Paul Scarfe of Leeds, and the other by an unknown reader.  A caption asked the mystery joke donor to "send us your name and address, pal - we'll recognise your handwriting!"

The 16 September 1978 Paddywack page established what was to become the tradition of 3 gags on a page, which was to remain the norm for the rest of the feature's run (excepting those occasions where the feature was reduced to less than a whole page).  On 30 September 1978 the original title panel, which had appeared across the top of the first frame, was replaced by a title that ran across the top of the page and featured a reversed letter K, together with Paddywack's face at the right hand side.  This same issue introduced the black background for the strip which was to remain for all subsequent full-page Paddywack features.

We have to acknowledge that there was an undertone of national stereotyping in the case of Paddywack (the character identified himself as Irish on a single occasion - in the 15 September 1979 issue), although the comic publishers wisely asked the readers to send in "Paddywack-type jokes" rather than identifying a particular nationality.  This was not the only case of questionable humour appearing in Cheeky Weekly - the Joke-Box Jury feature regularly included jokes that would be regarded as inappropriate today, and a number of Cheeky's Pals exhibited traits that would not be acceptable in current mainstream comics.  Cheeky Weekly was being published in very different times from our own, and 'humour' of this nature was common in the media and pubs, workplaces and school playgrounds.

Cheeky Weekly 20 October 1979


All the Paddywack strips were drawn by Jack Clayton, who had previously drawn the Home Movie feature in the comic.  Jack doesn't appear to have been as prolific across comics as some of his contemporaries such as Terry Bave, Tom Paterson and Mike Lacey, who each had strips in most if not all of the IPC humour titles of the period.  Indeed, the Home Movie strip's final appearance was in the issue dated 10 June 1978, a month before Paddywack started, so Jack never had more than one strip running in Cheeky Weekly at any time.  He had a very distinctive style which particularly suited the Paddywack gags, although in the early strips Jack was trying to make his artwork look a little primitive as it was supposed to be drawn by Doodle Doug.  As the strip progressed, Jack's usual style returned.

In 6 issues the Paddywack feature appeared across two pages, but the remainder of the strips were a single page, or less if space was at a premium.

With the introduction of Cheeky Weekly's 'new look' in the 07 July 1979 issue, Paddywack's strip moved to the rear of the comic and no further reference was made to Doodle Doug being the artist (although Doug continued to appear as one of the cast of Cheeky's Week).

Paddywack most regularly followed the Tuesday page (37 times), followed by 12 appearances following Friday, and 9 after Calculator Kid.  In terms of page numbers, the strip was highly mobile, appearing between pages 4 and 29.

The Paddywack feature appeared in 77 issues of Cheeky Weekly, missing only two issues in its run between 08 July 1978 and 26 January 1980 (the penultimate issue).  For some reason Paddywack, who survived the merge with Whoopee!, did not appear on the final two feature pages in the last issue of Cheeky Weekly, in which all the other characters who made the move into the new companion comic were shown meeting their Whoopee! pals.  It could be argued that this was due to Paddywack's status as a fictional character in relation to Cheeky's Week, but Gran, another fictional character from Cheeky's viewpoint, was included.

OK, so now let's address Paddywack's seemingly dual existence in Cheeky's world.  I can only assume that Paddywack was a real inhabitant of Krazy Town, on whom Doodle Doug based his strips.  Cheeky must have known that the subject of Doug's strips was in fact real, since the toothy funster was not surprised when he met Paddywack in the cinema. Cheeky certainly does react to Paddywack, but in my view his reaction is one of exasperation at Paddywack's comment (which was a common reaction of characters in the Paddywack strips), rather than surprise at coming face-to-face with what he had hitherto considered to be a fictional character. Paddywack made a further trans-dimensional hop to appear as one of the guests at Pete and Pauline Potts' party in the 6 Million Dollar Gran strip in Cheeky Weekly dated 06 October 1979.

It could be argued that Paddywack became a real inhabitant of Krazy Town when his link to Doodle Doug was severed as from the 07 July 1979 issue, but the meeting between Cheeky and Paddywack had occurred in the 02 September 1978 issue.

The features - Pin-Up Pal

The Pin-Up Pal feature presented a series of full-colour posters that featured Cheeky, his pals and certain characters with a tangential connection to Cheeky's Week.

The first Pin-Up Pal was Cheeky himself, in the debut issue of Cheeky Weekly. The poster was located at the middle of the comic, and so benefited from being spread across 2 pages. The following two issues included 2-page centre-spread posters of 6 Million Dollar Gran and Mustapha Million respectively. All the subsequent Pin-Up Pal posters were single pages only, but all were full colour.  After the Mustapha Million poster in the 05 November 1977 issue, there was a break of several weeks until the next poster, which featured Lily Pop, appeared in the comic dated 18 February 1978.  Thereafter the posters appeared on average twice a month (although this figure is skewed slightly by the fact that no P-UPs appeared in October and November 1978) until 06 January 1979, from which date a Pin-Up Pal appeared in every issue until the feature ended with the Skateboard Squad poster in the comic dated 31 March 1979.

As mentioned above, some of the characters featured on the Pin-Up Pal pages were not actually inhabitants of Cheeky's universe.  6 Million Dollar Gran was linked to Cheeky's Week by being a character from a TV programme, despite being shown in the background of a Skateboard Squad story.  Mustapha Million, The Elephant from Elephant On The Run, Disaster Des and the Why, Dad Why pair were all characters from The Mystery Comic which Cheeky would track down and read each week.

Interestingly, Paddywack existed in a quantum-particle-like indeterminate state in Cheeky's universe, appearing both as a character drawn by Doodle Doug and as an actual inhabitant of Cheeky's world, interacting with the toothy funster during the cinema interval in the comic dated 02 September 1978.
 
The artwork for the majority of the posters appears to have been specially prepared, but those featuring Baker's Boy, Square Eyes and the Skateboard Squad seem to be relatively crude, and I suspect they were copy-and-paste jobs from comic panels.

Pin-Up Pal was one of the most stable of Cheeky Weekly's features in terms of location - for 35 of the issues in which it appeared it occupied page 32 (aka the back cover).  In the issue dated 09 December 1978 it appeared on page 28 which was the back cover, as that week's issue had a reduced page count due to industrial action.  The 4 other occasions on which Pin-Up Pals appeared on pages other than 32 were in the first 3 issues of the comic in which, as already mentioned, the feature appeared across centre pages 16 and 17, and also the issue dated 16 September 1978 (see below).

Though it appeared in 39 issues, the Pin-Up Pal feature actually featured in the comic 40 times.  How so?  Well, the issue dated 16 September 1978 featured two separate Pin-Up Pal posters, one featuring Calculator Kid (drawn by Frank McDiarmid although the regular CK strip was by Terry Bave), and the other showing Disco Kid strutting his funky stuff.  That week the first of the centre pages was taken up with the final, full-colour part of the cut-out Crack A Joke game, leaving a single, full-colour page available.  That page was allocated to the Calculator Kid poster (which features then-Chancellor of the Exchequer Denis Healey among those queuing up to get their figures, in Healey's case, the budget, sorted out by Charlie's calculator), while the Disco Kid poster occupied the usual Pin-Up Pal location, the back cover.
Of course, in saying the feature appeared 40 times, I am counting the 3 centre-spread posters as single appearances.

Frank McDiarmid drew 32 of the posters.  For the breakdown of the remaining artists, please see the table below.  As you'll see, all the posters whose subject was not an inhabitant of Cheeky's Week were drawn by their respective regular artists.

After the Pin-Up Pal series finished, The Burpo Special took up residence on the back page, appearing there 12 times until displaced by Snail of The Century, which appeared on page 32 in 25 issues.

You can see a gallery of the Pin-Up Pal posters at Bruce's blog.
