The Rejects - Lily Pop's Little Sister

A recent request to show this particular strip has prompted me to kick off a new series of posts that I've been planning for a while - The Rejects.

As we have seen, a number of the cast of the Cheeky's Week strips in Cheeky Weekly originated in the 'Ello, it's Cheeky/'Ello, I'm Cheeky pages in Krazy. However, some characters who appeared quite regularly in those same Krazy pages failed to make the transition to Cheeky's own comic. This new series will focus on the toothy funster's Krazy pals who didn't make it to Cheeky Weekly.

This Cheekys' Pal page from Krazy dated 25 February 1978 introduced readers to luscious Lily Pop's little sister. Maybe the relationship established here between Baby Burpo and young Miss Pop was deemed to deviate too radically from the terrible tyke's tough toddler image, but for whatever reason Lily's sister was never seen again either in Krazy or Cheeky Weekly.




Burpo introduced Lily again in the first episode of Cheeky Weekly's run of Burpo Specials almost 10 months after the above strip was published.
