If you're getting a sensation of deja chuckle from this cover it's because the visuals are constructed from previously-published artwork. The image of Uncle Hamish originally appeared in Cheeky Weekly dated 21 July 1979, and the drawing of a newspaper-delivery-bag-toting Cheeky is sourced from the cover of the 07 July 1979 edition.

Cheeky's Week proper starts over the page with a Sunday rendered by Barrie Appleby, following which we get to see what Batman looks like when drawn by Terry Bave (and which of us hasn't pondered that at some time or other?).

It's very rare to find oneself disappointed by Terry Bave's artwork, but I must admit I feel we've been a bit short-changed as regards the TV-related fancy dress costumes on display above. Apart from the caped crusader and Kojak (and Charlie's inadvertent Doctor), there are no other identifiable characters on view, unless those are two Monster Muncheers in panel 3, row 3. I would have expected a dustbin-based Dalek at the very least.
This week's 6 Million Dollar Gran story is her final 3-pager.
Elephant on The Run recognises an old friend this week but it would seem that our amnesiac pachyderm pal doesn't appreciate the significance of this recovered memory and so fails to question The Great Mysto about who he is and how he came to be in his current peripatetic predicament.

Barrie Appleby draws Cheeky's Week up to and including Wednesday, after which Bob Hill takes up the pen to furnish the remainder of our grinning pal's seven day gagfest. This was the only time that Bob drew Cheeky's Week (though his association with the toothy funster goes back to the 10 September 1977 issue of Krazy wherein he took over the artwork on The Krazy Gang from Ian Knox), and Barrie's work on this issue was the final time he contributed to the daily pages of Cheeky's Week, although his final Cheeky Weekly art was on the cover of the 17 November 1979 edition.

I like the Rodin reference
As he has done for the previous 2 issues, Cheeky uses his column on the Chit-Chat page to enlighten us (although not very extensively) as to the Cheeky Weekly creators, this time focusing on Robert Nixon...
Colin Whittock stands in for Jimmy Hansen as the Speed Squad artist...

Cheeky's Saturday is devoted to a visit to the newspaper offices courtesy of Rex Press. The big news is that a number of the toothy funster's pals are there and the jokes flow like newsprint off the presses.
For the second week, Snail of the Century is absent so the comic concludes with an ad for Mr Bellamy's Amazing Liquorice Novelties
As mentioned above, Bob Hill and Barrie Appleby share the Cheeky's Week artwork duties in this issue while Frank McDiarmid's recycled renderings grace the cover.
