Whatever Happened To...

When the Dandy was revamped, we said goodbye to a lot of old characters (not forever, though, one day they'll be back, even if it's only for one day!)
So how are they faring in retirement? Well, as they're no longer in Comics, they're aging at a realistic rate, to the age they would have been by now - and possibly some of them are adjusting to life outside the comic's pages more easily than others-

I have suggested it to the Dandy editor, but just now he's tryingout new things. I fear the moment may have passed, as it's all of 6 weeks since Cuddles and Dimples were in Dandy Xtreme- and that's like six months in child weeks.

Six weeks? Robbie Rebel came back to The Beano last week, he'd been gone for quite a while. And in 1989 they brought Biffo back after a three year absence! Six weeks isn't that long. Anyway, annuals are prepared so far in advance that I wouldn't be surprised if you drew C&D for the 2012 Dandy Annual!

Do you know, I can't remember. I have a feeling there was an annual prepared, but i may be thinking of this years. I'll get back to you. But don't forget, what the Beano does isn't necessarily an indication of what the Dandy will do!
