''Whizzer and Chips'' was a {{British comic|s}} which first started in 1969. The comic ran until 1990 when it [[ComicsMerger merged]] with a comic called ''ComicBook/{{Buster}}'' (a spin off of sorts of AndyCapp). It was similiar in style to ''ComicBook/TheBeano'' and ''ComicBook/TheDandy'' and was a direct competitor to the two being published by a different publisher ''Fleetway'' as opposed to ''ComicBook/TheBeano'' and ''ComicBook/TheDandy'' which were published by ''Creator/DCThomson''. The comic's gimmik was that it was two comics in one, one called ''Whizzer'' and the other called ''Chips'' which was a pull-out section. These comics were supposedly rivals with so called raids (which involved characters from one comic entering the other) between the two being a common occurrence, readers were encouraged to become Whizz-kids or Chip-ites (this referred to which comic they supported) and each comic had a different leader Sid from a strip called [[ABoyAndHisX Sid's Snake]] for Whizzer and Shiner for Chips. The distinction between the two titles was later emphasised by changing the duotone strips in ''Chips'' from red to blue.

* CuteWitch: The titular ''Bewitched Belinda''.



** This was a common thing for ''Bewitched Belinda'' to enact on others, though she never leaves them transformed.



** ''Bewitched Belinda'' was basically ''Series/{{Bewitched}}'' with the protagonist aged down to a girl.



** "Top of the Class". A harassed teacher tries to cope with the fact that half his class are posh swots, the other half are lower-class roughs, and the two groups hate each other. Unlike the other examples above, where editorial sympathy was clearly with the lower-class characters, UpperClassTwit / AristocratsAreEvil were in full play and UnderdogsNeverLose, in this case both sides were presented as equal and one side usually didn't come out on top.
