Cheeky first appeared in his own comic on 22nd October 1977 but he had already become a star in Krazy Comic which came out earlier that year. In 1979 he was to join up with the "Krazy Gang" for a strip in Whizzer & Chips and in 1980 moved to Whoopee where he had his own "Cheeky Comic" inside.

Cheeky was the coolest person I knew when I was eight (nearly as cool as Tucker Jenkins) His mates like Posh Claude, Disco Kid, Gunga Dinn, the Spiv and the first love of my life Lilly Pop all seemed so exciting. Unfortunately age and a sense of political correctness has destroyed the magic.
But I've still got the jumper my Mum knitted from me. The funny thing is, no-one believes me when I tell them the "C" stands for Cheeky. - Phil Kmetsch

Cheeky had a rather unusual structure. The 'framing strip' showed Cheeky meeting various friends (like Walter Wurks the boy who always needed to go to the toilet), and linking into the other strips. The comic would show a week in the life of Cheeky with a different strip for each day of the week. On Monday he'd be doing his paper round and the Skateboard Squad would whizz by leading into their strip. He'd watch the Six Million Dollar Gran on tv, and other strips he'd watch in a cinema or read in books etc. I believe it merged with Whoopee. - Clive Huggett

Iíve still got a pile of Cheeky comics which Iím drip feeding my son. The comic had a days of the week spread each day fills with jokes and characters plus a serial of sorts.

Sunday was Skateboard Squad and Six Million Dollar Gran; Monday was the creepy story (read sneakily in the newsagents a la Watchmen!); Tuesday was the vintage strip from the 50ís; Wednesday was the best, Cheeky babysits Sweeney Toddler and tells him a Leo Baxendale illustrated story Ė the only bit of colour apart from the cover and classic Baxendale; Thurday itís the dodgy home movie; Friday is Mustapha Mi££ion about a ludicrously rich kid and Saturday is WB cartoon plus Space Family Robinson. - Dave Baldwin

I was a big fan of Cheeky when i was younger and i seem to remember a campaign to abolish Tuesdays that ran through the comic via some sort of symbol. I think it was inspired by a Van Morrison song. Can anyone tell me if I am right or is my mind starting to go. - Chris O Hanlon

Hi I was a kid and I collected, and still have, all of KRAZY comic. But because I was no longer paying the bills to my mum she stopped getting me CHEEKY. As a result I never did find out what happened to the kid in the wartime serial. I even wrote to Jim'll Fix It for an answer later on (luckily Jim never found me!).

Anyone know if it was a happy ending. During my writing phase in late teens I was going to write it in book form for myself and add my own ending. Never happened! - Steve Hancock
