Cheeky Weekly cover date 27 October 1979

Art: Frank McDiarmid






Manhole Man returns to the front page for the 26th time, sharing this delightfully surreal cover image with our chirpy chum and a Caledonian choo-choo.












 
On the Sunday page, the vulture circling above Jogging Jeremy puts me in mind of The Gobbles from The Beezer, and is that Roger the Dodger's Joe the Crow flying alongside?


Frank again

It's 6 Million Dollar Gran versus 1 Million Pound Octopus...

Art: Nigel Edwards



 
...but the sum lost as a result of Disaster Des becoming embroiled in a grommet sales drive is far in excess of the cost of the aged automaton and her synthetic squid adversary...

Art: Mike Lacey
 
There's a shockingly violent conclusion to this week's episode of The Gang, but thankfully it seems everyone escapes unscathed (physically, at least).

Art: Robert MacGillivray


The colouring of the rodent-related Why, Dad, Why? is at variance with the dialogue...

Art: John Geering


Cheeky's tailor chum Ah Sew makes his debut on the Thursday page. Ah Sew was the final addition to the Cheeky's Week supporting cast.

More Frank

Our toothy pal's friends find that the museum offers no refuge against his corny gags as Cheeky pays a visit on Saturday. As has become the custom, the comic concludes with the back garden antics of Snail.

This issue features an all-Frank-McDiarmid Cheeky's Week, a month since the last one, with Frank this time delivering nine pages packed with striped-jerseyed jocularity.
