The Cut-Out Features – Skateboard Snap

5 issues after the concluding instalment of the Cheeky Diary 1978, the imminent commencement of another cut-out feature was announced...

Cheeky Weekly 28 January 1978

Unlike most cut-out features of the period, which involved collecting instalments of a game over a few weeks, this game was complete within the Skateboard issue, occupying the centre spread and back cover in order that the cards could be printed in colour. The game thus usurped Creepy Sleepy Tale's centre-page location but in the manner of CST, Skateboard Snap was framed by Cheeky's Wednesday visit to babysit Burpo.

Surprisingly, the members of Cheeky Weekly's very own intrepid Skateboard Squad weren't depicted on the cards demonstrating their prowess. Instead, a selection of generic 'boarders were put through their paces.

Also lost to posterity – readers who chose to remove the Skateboard Snap elements from their comic would be depriving future generations of

  • Wednesday (and the snap game instructions!)
  • A page comprised of the concluding panel of Saturday, Snail's announcement of his forthcoming competition and a (filler) photo of a chimp on a skateboard.

  1. I find it funny that the instruction could be lost when stuck on card doh!!!!

    1. IPC probably hoped that readers would buy another copy of Cheeky Weekly just to keep the instructions!
