tuffits or spiders here. This Miss Muffit was always
"muffing" things up, getting them wrong,
getting in a muddle and getting herself thoroughly
Her real name was Milly, but the "muffit"
added by her friends, parents and associates,
frequently applied the term to herself as well. Indeed,
lack of confidence was quite alarming. She was
about doing anything in case she messed it up,
she almost always did. But this was a Fleetway
her mistakes invariably lead to unforseen results
of them rather positive...
Of course, modern readers would point to dyslexia,
and lord-knows-what-other medical condition and
really wasn't a laughing matter but - people -
this was a comic
strip, plain and simple.There was no subversive
"deeper" implication. Just a piece of
harmless fluffy fun...
Miss Muffit started her run in the first issue
but I've yet to confirm an end date for the strip.
Sadly, the poor
lass muffed-up her annual appearances, only
appearing in the
first two editions...
