Re: Sparky 1965 to 1973

That's the one! I was informed on this site that they later appeared in the `Dandy` as the `Red Hot Chilli Dogs` but whether they were drawn by same artist- I don't know!

Said artist who drew `Snip & Snap` in Sparky also drew `Jumbo and Jet` sadly, no where as funny to me!

Re: Sparky 1965 to 1973

Chris! `Snip & Snap` are a really funny strip! I highlighted their `adventures` in my `Sparky-File` (A Personal & Illustrated history of the comic on `word`) My favourite was the one where they broke a Window- but tried to get Postie to take the blame! In the final panel, Both dogs and Postie hiding...

Re: DC Thomson - `Fun` title free gifts - the 70s.

Rightyho! and from now (1977 - 79_, only Dandy and Beano gave gifts (Unless I got it wrong!) Seems 1976 was `Fun titles` gift free but I would have thought Beezer might have given some when it `swallowed up` Cracker in Aug 76 - but the newly conjoined titles did not give gifts! Is that a first Ray? ...
