     Little Miss Muffit
    Little Miss Muffit

No tuffits or spiders here. This Miss Muffit was always
    "muffing" things up, getting them wrong, forgetting things,
    getting in a muddle and getting herself thoroughly

    Her real name was Milly, but the "muffit" tag was
    added by her friends, parents and associates, and she
    frequently applied the term to herself as well. Indeed, her
    lack of confidence  was quite alarming. She was hesitant
    about doing anything in case she messed it up, and sadly,
    she almost always did. But this was a Fleetway strip so
    her mistakes invariably lead to unforseen results - many
    of them rather positive...

    Of course, modern readers would point to dyslexia, dyspraxia
    and lord-knows-what-other medical condition and how this
    really wasn't a laughing matter but - people - this was a comic
    strip, plain and simple.There was no subversive message. No
    "deeper" implication. Just a piece of harmless fluffy fun...

    Miss Muffit started her run in the first issue of Whoopee!,
    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...
