On this day, 26 June 1976: Whizzer and Chips
Sid’s Snake, drawn by Mike Lacey. Sid and Slippy were such a familiar and comforting sight, on the cover of Whizzer and Chips for over 15 years before moving to the inner pages. A good 1000+ uses for a giant pet snake!
Jolly Roger v Skully Crossbones was a comparatively short-lived piratey strip. Drawn by Dick Millington.
