Whizzer and Chips issue 11, 1969

Whizzer and Chips was a children's humour comic launched by IPC on 18 October 1969. It absorbed Knockout (1973), Krazy (1978) and Whoopee! (1985), and was merged into Buster on 27 October 1990.

The lead strip of Whizzer was "Sid's Snake", and the lead strip of Chips was "Shiner". Other strips included:
