About a third of the Chucklers Weekly was given over to full page comic strips, Australian and imported.
These comics appear in the two editions I have, each filling one or two pages:
- Captain Justice (Australia, Monty Wedd)
- King Comet and the Space Rangers (Australia, Monty Wedd)
- The Blue Triangle featuring Dan Cooper (Belgium, Albert Weinberg, French-language comic, from Tintin magazine)
- Rivets (USA, George Sixta)
- Beetle Bailey (USA, Mort Walker)
- Wendy and Jinx (UK, wr. Valerie or Michael Hastings, dr. Ray Bailey, from Girl magazine)
- The Jackson Twins (USA, Dick Brooks)
- All About Debbie Reynolds (Australia, Arthur Hudson)
- Joey Jumper Serial (Australia, Anonymous)
- Wilbert (USA, Gill Fox)
Monty Wedd's work was also seen in the Australian Children's Newspaper, published by the national broadcaster the ABC (it was the second magazine I ever subscribed to, after Chucklers Weekly).
Arthur Hudson who drew All About Debbie Reynolds (below) and Monty Wedd both contributed to the The Australian Children’s Pictorial Social Studies series of educational comics.
