I remember reading that one when it originally came out as well. This is making me feel nostalgic for the day,

I'm glad people are reading them. That means I'll post more. This is from the Buster Book, 1984-

Anyone remember Nipper comic? It was smaller than the normal comic but it only lasted 16 issues. It went out with an annual like the big Buster ones of the late 80s. Here is a story from its only annual-

The Nipper annual really is a curio. The titular character, a small boy, had a pet bird called Flapper who for some reason had a learner plate round its neck....

Try getting away with a character like that now a days. Del Boy Oliver would be foaming at the mouth.

There was so much stuff they got away with back then that you couldn't now.

I remember these last three. Makes me wish I hadn't got rid of them all now.

I used to have a massive box full of the comics which were stored in my Dads shed. I checked recently and he used them to start a bonfire about a year ago.

They were in good condition as well.

There was about 8 years of comics in there from about 1978 through to 1986 all Whizzer and Chips, Buster, Whoopee, Scream and a few others. It must have been some bonfire.

It was only due to this thread I thought to look them up as I have known there were there for years.

When Cuddles went to The Dandy and merged with Dimples, he lost his Elvis dad and got Dimples' dad instead as they became brothers. Which was a bit of an insult since Cuddles and his folks had been around for about 6 years before they merged. Anyway, from Beano '88-
